Two children were among those injured in the wreck, and the cause of the crash has not yet been determined by authorities.*

The crash occurred in the afternoon of January 14 on Lawrence Bridge Road in Oconee County. At about 4 p.m., 25-year-old Alex Braden Richardson, of Seneca, South Carolina, was driving a 2016 Ford (model not reported) north on Lawrence Bridge Road. He was reportedly on his way home from working with the City of Walhalla.

At the intersection with Plantation Road, Richardson crossed over the centerline of the roadway and traveled into the southbound lanes.
