A two-vehicle accident that took place on Sunday night in Pawleys Island, South Carolina caused a fatality. Right before 6 pm, the fatal two-vehicle accident occurred when an SUV attempted to make a left turn on Highway 17 near Professional Lane, and then collided with another SUV carrying three occupants. The 58-year-old man from New Jersey who was driving the first SUV sustained fatal injuries while the victims in the SUV that was hit incurred a variety of undisclosed personal injuries.
In the evening, car accidents may occur due to lowered visibility in the dark or a profusion of lights that may create confusion on the road. Other contributing factors to motor vehicle crashes include distracted driving, intoxicated driving, or drowsy driving. Many times, SUVs that are engaged in a collision could roll over, which may cause drivers and passengers to suffer from serious head or spinal injuries.
