Drivers and passengers hear it time and time again: buckle up. No matter how experienced a driver might be, it is impossible to predict the actions of others on the roadway. As you travel down a road or highway in South Carolina, the sudden negligent behavior of another driver on the road can lead to a car accident. This type of situation played out recently on a South Carolina road, killing three people and injuring two, according to police.

The accident started when a Chevy, which contained two people that had been traveling southbound, veered left of center, according to authorities. The car struck a Toyota, which had a driver and two passengers, in a head-on collision.

The 29-year-old man driving the Toyota, as well as a female passenger in the back seat, died at the scene. The two were reportedly siblings. The front passenger in the car was transported to a nearby hospital with injuries. All three occupants were not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.

The Chevy was reportedly being driven by a 23-year-old man, who was also not wearing his seat belt. The man died from the injuries he sustained in the accident. A female passenger in the Chevy was transported to the hospital with injuries.

The accident remains under investigation. Authorities reportedly worked late into the night to piece together what happened in the South Carolina crash. The information gathered, as well as final investigation reports, will be crucial for the families left to deal with the loss and injuries of their loved ones.
