August 24, 2019

GREENVILLE, SC. – According to an online news report posted at foxcarolina.com, a head-on vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 25 in Greenville, South Carolina, tragically killed one person. It is unclear if anyone else was injured in the wreck. The cause of the accident is not clear at this time, and South Carolina Highway Patrol is in the process of investigating.* 

The accident occurred during the evening near Travelers Rest, South Carolina, close to the border with North Carolina. South Carolina Highway Patrol and Fox Carolina report that around 10:15 p.m., a 2013 Kia was traveling southbound on U.S. 25 in the northbound lane. It is not clear why the driver was traveling in the wrong lane or how long the vehicle had been in the northbound lane. 

About seven miles outside of Travelers Rest, the Kia collided head-on with a 2007 Toyota that had been traveling north on the highway. The models of the Kia and the Toyota were not reported. The circumstances of the accident are not fully known at this time, and authorities have not made any determinations about the official cause of the crash.

Fox Carolina reports that the driver of the Kia was trapped inside the vehicle after the accident and tragically died at the scene. She was identified as a woman from Greenville. Her age was not reported. It does not appear that she had any passengers riding with her at the time of the accident.

The report did not say how many people were riding in the Toyota or whether anyone from that vehicle was injured. No one from the Toyota was identified in the news report. 

South Carolina Highway Patrol is still investigating the crash. At the time that the report for Fox Carolina was posted online, no further information was available regarding the accident.
