A car accident involving a minivan and farm equipment occurred in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on Monday morning. Around 8:06 am, a minivan collided with the farm equipment on South Carolina Highway 31 near US Highway 501. Upon impact, the minivan overturned and ignited. Two occupants from the minivan incurred serious injuries after the Myrtle Beach car accident and were transported to a local hospital.
Although it is rare that cars may engage in accidents with farm equipment such as large riding lawnmowers and tractors, the possibility exists. Generally, vehicles used for farming tend to be large, unwieldy, and challenging to handle even for drivers with experience. If the farming equipment is used near busy highways, a serious crash like the Myrtle Beach car accident could occur and may lead to devastating personal injuries or potential fatalities for any parties involved.
