A car accident occurred in Inman, South Carolina that led to a fatality. Around 2:11pm, on Monday afternoon, two vehicles collided after a sedan turned from a private drive unto South Carolina Highway 9 and hit an SUV. The driver of the SUV sustained various injuries, and the 78-year-old sedan driver succumbed to his fatal injuries after receiving medical treatment at the Spartanburg Medical Center. Two children who occupied the SUV during the Spartanburg County car accident went to the hospital as a precautionary measure.
Victims of side-impact crashes may sustain more severe injuries than in a collision from the front or rear of the vehicle. Excessive speed and the popularity of SUVs have contributed to a 20 percent increase in serious car accidents involving side-impact crashes like the Spartanburg County car accident. These types of accidents may lead to serious injuries as well as potential fatalities for victims.
