Simple errors cause of many car accidents in South Carolina

With the increase of population in many areas, the increase of drivers has followed suit. With more and more drivers on the road, the number of car accidents and resulting fatalities increases. A local South Carolina woman has recently lost her life in a fatal car crash.

A 24-year-old woman and her 5-year-old passenger were heading north in an SUV on a local highway around 12:20 p.m. on Tuesday, June 27. The driver attempted to make a left hand turn and struck a small sedan in the process. The driver of the sedan became trapped. Firefighters were later able to free her, and she was transported to a local hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries.

The driver of the SUV was also injured in the accident and was transported to a local hospital to be treated for minor injuries. Her young passenger was not injured. The operator of the offending vehicle is being charged with failure to yield right of way. Authorities continue to investigate.

Injuries suffered in car accidents can leave those affected unable to work, laden with ever increasing debt from medical bills as a direct result of the accident or the loss of a loved one. When a South Carolina driver fails to follow road etiquette or simply ignores driving safety and/or applicable traffic laws, tragedy can strike. An attorney well-versed in personal injury litigation can help those affected by car accidents seek possible monetary compensation due to the negligence of another driver. Monies awarded could help to cover medical costs incurred, lost wages, funeral expenses and related financial losses.
