Three Vehicle Crash Injures Six in Horry County, South Carolina (SC)

October 01, 2020

HORRY COUNTY, SC- writes that six people suffered injuries in a crash involving three vehicles that occurred this week at the intersection of Green Sea Road and Highway 9 in Loris, South Carolina. Emergency responders received calls regarding the accident in the mid-afternoon. Reports did not include information concerning the cause of the crash or the identities of those injured in the wreck.*

According to the South Carolina Department of Public Safety, the state experienced a decline in traffic deaths during the first half of 2019. By June of 2019, 388 people died on the state's roads. That number indicates a decrease of more than eight percent as compared to the 425 people who had died within the same time period in 2018. The state's statistics indicate 127 of the people who died in crashes did not have their seatbelts on at the time. Seventy of the victims were pedestrians, and another eleven were cyclists. Thirty-one motorcyclists also lost their lives on the road in the state during the first half of 2019. The numbers indicate a rise in pedestrian fatalities from 61 to 70. Horry County and Greenville County are tied with 31 fatalities, each which makes those two counties the deadliest in the state. 

While the rate of fatalities may have experienced a slight decline in early 2019, South Carolina has a poor record when it comes to traffic-related fatalities. Two likely reasons for the state's dangerous roads include distracted drivers and drunk drivers. South Carolina's distracted driving law does not prohibit drivers from using handheld electronics. However, texting and driving are illegal. The problem is, police struggle to enforce the law when it is difficult to prove that a driver using his or her phone was texting at the time rather than using the device for a purpose that would not violate the law. The state also ranks among the deadliest for drunk driving crashes.
