Fatal Car Accidents in South Carolina

Ladson, SC – One Killed in I-26 Crash near MM 203The unexpected loss of a loved one can be incredibly difficult to deal with. Unfortunately, more than 100 people lose their lives in fatal collisions across our state every month. These accidents add up to more than 1700 people dying due to negligent and reckless drivers who often cause these accidents to occur.
