Fatal Car Accidents in South Carolina

Greenville, SC – Two Killed in I-385 Crash near MM 31Fatal accidents are reported every day in our state. Although these accidents take place frequently, it is nearly impossible to prepare for the sudden and unexpected impact that they will have on your family. The unfortunate truth is that we see a significant number of fatal collisions take place as a result of driver negligence. Some of the leading factors in these accidents include:

  • Distracted driving: drivers who do not pay attention to the road ahead can cause devastating accidents that ultimately take the lives of innocent people. Unfortunately, there are many accidents caused by drivers who are eating, talking with passengers, or texting on their cell phones.
  • Speeding: traveling too fast increases the risk of a driver losing control of their vehicle. Speeding, especially around curved roadways, can result in drivers drifting into other nearby lanes and crashing into other vehicles.
  • Tailgating: traveling too closely to other vehicles on the road is incredibly dangerous. When tailgating or following too closely, drivers do not have the ability to stop in time to avoid collisions. As a result, we see many innocent people lose their lives as a result of drivers who engage in this reckless action.
