A head-on crash in Chester County, SC on Wednesday, April 7, left the drivers of both vehicles dead.
Authorities say the crash occurred around 10:20 AM on Catawba River Road near Fish Camp Road, about 4.5 miles north of Great Falls, South Carolina. A 2006 Acura SUV was moving north on Catawba River Road, as a 2011 Honda van was heading south on that road. The van crossed the center line and crashed into the SUV, according to state troopers.
Despite wearing a seatbelt, the SUV’s driver was trapped in their vehicle and sadly died from their injuries. The van’s driver was also trapped in their vehicle and unfortunately died from their injuries.
Authorities have not yet released the names of the deceased drivers, but say no one else was involved in the accident. They are continuing to investigate the causes of the crash.
Many factors can contribute to head-on collisions, including speeding, reckless driving, disobeying traffic laws, distracted driving, driving under the influence, or falling asleep at the wheel.
