On Interstate 26, a multi-vehicle crash caused a fatality and multiple personal injuries for at least five individuals. Around 8:15 pm, on Monday evening, the accident occurred in Spartanburg, South Carolina after a 47-year-old male driver from Clyde, North Carolina crossed the median, and then headed in the wrong direction, hitting three vehicles in the process. One driver succumbed to his fatal injuries at the scene of the multi-vehicle crash while two passengers from an SUV required hospitalization. A man from Inman, South Carolina and the child who accompanied him sustained injuries in the crash. In total, six victims were taken to the Spartanburg Regional Medical Center, and their conditions are unknown.
A multi-vehicle crash may occur after one crash takes place on a congested road, which leads to additional collisions that may be from failing to stop in time or recklessly driving around the accident site. Otherwise known as a chain reaction accident, motorists and passengers involved in the crash may incur a variety of injuries and potential fatalities. Oftentimes, an accident of this nature may bring catastrophic results.
