Former Utah Football Player's Daughter Released from Hospital After Terrible Car Crash in Georgetown, South Carolina (SC)

September 28, 2020

GEORGETOWN, SC- writes that a car crash in South Carolina tragically killed two people and injured several others. One of the cars involved in the horrific head-on impact was carrying the family of a former defensive back from Utah. The football coach's family was in South Carolina, while he was with one of his four children in Southern California. The early morning crash killed one of his three children who were in the car, a three-year-old girl.*

The driver in the other vehicle also died in the terrible wreck. Now one of the other children has been released from the hospital and appears to be doing well. The family's son was released but then readmitted because of a suspected hematoma. The driver is still in critical condition. A GoFundMe page was set up to help the family during this difficult time.

Head-on crashes are some of the deadliest collisions to occur on the road. At 43 miles per hour, the risk of one of these incidents resulting in death is significant. While it is possible to avoid causing a head-on impact in most cases be staying at a reasonable speed, focusing on the road, and never driving drunk, it is impossible to control the behavior of other drivers. If a driver enters your lane of traffic heading in the opposite direction from you, there will be very little time to react and try to avoid that crash.

One way to help stay safe is to select well-designed roadways. For instance, roads that have barriers to prevent cars from simply drifting into your lane. A cautious driver may choose to avoid roads without barriers unless the speed limit is under 40. Still, there are wrong-way crashes that take place on divided highways, but such incidents are rare.
