Car Crash on Needlerush Parkway in Charleston, South Carolina Kills Sports Broadcaster

December 08, 2019

CHARLESTON, SC- writes that a well-known sports broadcaster died in a car crash over the weekend in Charleston. The Charleston County Coroner’s Office reported that the victim was driving on Needlerush Parkway during the later evening when he veered off the road and struck a tree. The 71-year-old passed away at the scene.*

The victim, originally from Daytona, Florida, has been a long-time radio personality. He currently worked with Kirkman Broadcasting but has been on many radio programs throughout Georgia and parts of South Carolina.  

Single-vehicle crashes kill thousands in the United States every year. Of course, these crashes are mostly avoidable. Drivers can reduce their risks by staying off the roadway during winter storms or icy weather, and by avoiding roads that are full of curves and sharp twists. These factors tend to put a driver at a higher risk of being in a crash.

Drivers can take steps to prevent these incidents. Stay alert, do not drive tired, never drive drunk, and do not exceed the speed limit. Unfortunately, while we all know not to drive tired, drunk, or while texting, statistics indicate that many of us still engage in these behaviors.

It is also essential to use a seatbelt. Seatbelts saved about 14,955 people's lives in 2017. Wearing a seatbelt is a good way to greatly lower a person's risk of being ejected in a single-vehicle rollover or fixed object crash. A person who does not use a seatbelt faces a risk of ejection that is about 30 times greater than a driver who does use a seatbelt. Being ejected from a vehicle is more often deadly than not.
