A fatal car wreck claimed the life of one of the drivers on Sunday afternoon in Ravenel, South Carolina. Just after 5 pm the accident occurred when a sedan turned on to Savannah Highway, and then smacked into an SUV. The driver of the sedan succumbed to fatal injuries at the scene of the crash while the driver and passenger of the SUV required hospitalization for serious injuries. They were both transported to the Medical University of South Carolina after the fatal car wreck.
When side-impact collisions occur, the drivers and passengers of both vehicles may incur a variety of personal injuries or even fatalities. During evening hours, visibility may decrease, and motorists may experience driver fatigue, which contributes to motor vehicle accidents. Even if victims survive a collision of this nature, they may endure debilitating injuries, and be unable to earn a proper income.
