Undoubtedly, the loss of a loved one is often devastating. When that person dies in a car accident due to the negligence of another, it may only be natural to hope that he or she did not have time to realize what was happening. The family of an out-of-state man working in South Carolina may be wondering whether he knew what was about to occur as he drove home from work on a recent Wednesday morning.

At about 6:30 a.m., he was traveling on SC 130 after finishing his shift at a nuclear station. Another vehicle was heading in the opposite direction at the same time. For some reason, the second vehicle veered into the man’s lane. The two vehicles hit head-on.

The 62-year-old North Carolina man suffered fatal injuries in the crash, and he was pronounced dead at the scene. No information was provided as to whether he had already passed away when emergency responders arrived. It is also not known what injuries, if any, the other driver suffered. Further details concerning the cause of the accident were not reported. The South Carolina Highway Patrol is in charge of the investigation, and no report was given regarding whether criminal charges against the surviving driver are being contemplated.

As the family of the victim grieves, they also retain the right to file a wrongful death claim against the other driver in connection with this deadly car accident. Not only might this give them some answers regarding his death, but it also gives them the opportunity to seek a judgment for monetary damages such as funeral and burial costs, among others. If they prevail in providing negligence, the court will determine claims for specific items of financial damage.
