Fatal Car Accidents in South Carolina

Darlington Co., SC – One Killed in Auto Wreck at Hwy 15 & Belle Vue DrEvery day, fatal accidents take place to have a devastating impact on the lives of families. Unfortunately, many of the fatal collisions reported right here in our state are preventable. Careless and reckless actions continue to contribute to a significant portion of the vehicle collisions that occur on our roads. Some of the most common causes of these accidents include:

  • Distractions: Numerous fatal collisions occur due to drivers engaging in activities such as texting, talking to others, and even eating while operating a vehicle.
  • Speeding: Every road in our state is assigned a specific speed limit intended to offer individuals clear guidelines on safe travel. Regrettably, it is a frequent occurrence for drivers to surpass these limits, leading to severe and devastating collisions.
  • Failing to Yield: Despite the laws that our state has in place that grant the right-of-way to certain vehicles, we consistently witness instances where drivers neglect to yield. Consequently, these irresponsible drivers collide with innocent individuals, tragically leading to loss of life.
