A deadly car crash in Cleveland, SC was attributed to speeding on Saturday, September 4.
Authorities say the accident happened Saturday afternoon, on Highway U.S. 276 at North River road. The driver of a 2014 Toyota Prius was moving east on U.S 276. Meanwhile, a Rodeo SUV was stopped for traffic when a Ford Truck, towing a trailer, hit the SUV in the rear. The Ford then moved left of center and struck the oncoming Prius.
Sadly, the driver of the Prius was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police later charged the Ford’s driver with going too fast for conditions.
Unfortunately, speeding not only increases the chances of an accident, it also increases the chances of serious injury or death. Drivers should obey speed limits, but also pay attention to weather and road conditions. In heavy rain or other low visibility situations, even driving at or below the speed limit may be too fast for the current conditions.
