Tragic Car Crash in Aynor Kills Two, a Grandmother and Granddaughter in Aynor, South Carolina
AYNOR, S.C.- Wbtw.com writes that a fiery crash in Aynor killed two people late last week. The crash took place on Louisville Road and Valley Forge Road. The South Carolina Police stated that a Chevrolet HHR driving on Louisville Road ran the stop sign at the intersection and was hit by a GMC Yukon.*
Emergency responders received news of the crash in the afternoon and arrived at the scene where one of the vehicles had caught fire. The grandmother and the granddaughter were in the HHR, and both died in the crash. The driver and two others who were in the Yukon sustained injuries in the collision and were transported to a nearby hospital.
Many crashes take place at intersections because this is where vehicles traveling in different directions cross paths. If any driver fails to follow the traffic signals, then that person can easily cause a severe collision. Relying on red lights and stop signs to prevent deadly accidents means trusting that other drivers are paying attention to the road. Unfortunately, this is often not the case. One mishap at a stop sign can result in tragedy.
Some of the deadliest crashes are T-bone accidents in which cars are struck on their sides. When a vehicle is hit on its side, many safety features are less effective. There is less space between the side of the vehicle and an occupant than the front or back of a vehicle and the occupants. The impact can go directly into the person in the vehicle. Even with side airbags, these crashes often cause extreme injuries and fatalities.
