Crash Injures Three on Fantasy Harbour Boulevard in Horry County, South Carolina (SC)

September 11, 2020

HORRY COUNTY, SC- writes that a crash took place in Horry County this week that injured three people. The incident, which happened in the mid-afternoon, involved two vehicles.*

The cars reportedly collided on Fantasy Harbour Boulevard at April Grey Lane. All three victims were transported to the hospital. None of the injuries are considered life-threatening. Police asked that drivers avoid the area while crews work at the scene. 

Studies indicate that traditional intersections are not the best traffic design. At a crossroads, cars are traveling in various directions and entering one another’s’ paths. The results can lead to tragic accidents and intense impacts.

Roundabouts are a proven way to lower the chances of crashes taking place at an intersection. At a roundabout, cars are forced to travel slower and are all moving in the same direction as one another. As a result, many common varieties of crashes can be prevented, as there will be fewer ways for something to go wrong. If crashes do take place at an intersection, the results are often less severe, given the fact that the cars are driving more slowly. Studies also show that pedestrians are less likely to be injured at roundabouts. 

When it comes to the crash-reduction capabilities of roundabouts, it appears that injury-causing crashes are anywhere from 72 to 80 percent less likely when a roundabout replaces a cross-section intersection. Two-lane roundabouts are more likely to have crashes than are single-lane roundabouts, but researchers have found that even the number of crashes at two-lane intersections is lower over time. Drivers seem to get more accustomed to driving in these traffic features making the chances of crashes drop even further after a transition period. While some people believe that roundabouts may slow the flow of traffic, the opposite is true.
