A Union City man is dead following an accident with an armored car whose driver failed to yield.
Authorities say the crash happened about 6:45 PM on September 2, at the intersection of Bobby Faucette Road and SC Highway 9 in Union County. Ronald Seegers, 73, was driving south in an SUV on Highway 9 when his vehicle was hit by an armored car traveling west on Bobby Faucette Road. Emergency responders took both drivers to the hospital. Sadly, Seegers died in the hospital three days later.
The armored car driver was treated for his injuries and later charged with failure to yield the right of way.
Failure to yield accidents happen for a variety of reasons. Speed is a common factor. Sometimes the driver fails to yield for a stop sign or red light, or a car entering a roadway doesn’t yield to cars already on the road. Unfortunately, these accidents can cause serious injury and death.
