An eastbound Jeep dropped off of the shoulder and overcorrected, causing the vehicle to slide sideways into westbound traffic, striking a westbound Chevrolet Trax head-on. Both occupants of the Chevrolet received life threatening injuries. They were one block from their home. Firefighter-Paramedics arrived to find two heavily damaged vehicles in the westbound ditch. Crews requested two additional Fire-Rescue ambulances and two medical helicopters. Click here for more information.

An adult male died in a single vehicle accident Sunday evening 19-Sept. The accident was in a field, approx 1/4 mile off of the 22700 block of Bells Hwy (SC Hwy 64) west of the Town of Lodge.

The accident evidently happened earlier and due to the cell tower location, the 9-1-1 call was routed to a different county which caused some delays. Click here for more information.
