BLUFFTON, SC. – According to an online news report published by blufftontoday.com, a woman was killed in a head-on vehicle collision that occurred in Ridgeland, South Carolina. Two other people were injured in the crash, the cause of which authorities have not yet determined.*

The crash occurred on Old House Road in Ridgeland. At about 6:30 p.m., a 2010 Mercedes Benz was traveling west on Old House Road.
