Fatal Auto Accidents in South Carolina

Conway, SC – Jamil Kelly Killed in Crash at US-701 Hwy & Brickyard PlEvery year, we see fatal crashes take place in South Carolina. These incidents add up to countless lives lost every year. Many of these tragic crashes are avoidable, often resulting from negligent behaviors. Leading factors in many of these deadly accidents reported statewide include:

  • Running Red Lights and Stop Signs: Disregarding traffic signals and signs, leading to potential collisions at intersections.
  • Driver Fatigue: Driving while excessively tired, which can impair reaction time, awareness of potential dangers, and the ability to sustain attention.
  • Wrong-Way Driving: Entering a lane or road going the opposite direction, often leading to head-on collisions.
  • Tailgating: Following too closely reduces the reaction time to stop safely, increasing the likelihood of a crash.
  • Running Stop Signs: Failing to observe stop signs at intersections is a common cause of fatal accidents when vehicles collide with those that have the right of way.
