Fatal Car Accidents in South Carolina

Columbia, SC – One Killed in Car Crash on Prescot RdFatal car crashes have devastating consequences, and sadly, they claim the lives of innocent people across the United States every year. Here in South Carolina alone, over 1000 individuals lost their lives in vehicle collisions. Regrettably, many of these collisions could have been prevented. When drivers neglect to operate their vehicles safely and responsibly, the outcomes can be tragic. Some common factors contributing to these collisions in our state include:

  • Fatigue: Driving while excessively tired impairs alertness and reaction time, heightening the likelihood of fatal accidents.
  • Running Red Lights/Stop Signs: Ignoring traffic signals at intersections increases the risk of fatalities.
  • Weather Conditions: Bad weather diminishes visibility and traction, creating dangerous driving conditions.
