A collision between two cars on Tuesday night led to two fatalities and multiple injuries in Gaston, South Carolina. Around 8 pm, the fatal car accident occurred when one car attempted to avoid a head-on crash that turned into a side-impact collision with a completely different car. The 60-year-old driver and 20-year-old passenger in the first car succumbed to their fatal injuries at the scene of the accident. Three passengers and the driver from the car that smacked into the first car sustained undisclosed injuries.
Even when drivers attempt to move out of the way of an oncoming crash, they may engage in another collision, which could be just as lethal. A spate of personal injuries as well as potential fatalities may accompany a crash like this. The type of injuries and length of recovery time may impinge on a victim’s ability to earn a proper income.
