There was a fatal 18-wheeler accident on Highway 29 around 4 a.m. on February 24th in Anderson County. The driver and front seat passenger of a 2003 Honda were killed when their car collided with the truck as it was making a left turn into a driveway.
The truck was heading north on US-29 when it began to make a left turn and hit the Honda, which was heading south.
The driver and passenger in the Honda were pronounced dead at the scene, according to the coroner. The two passengers in the back seat of the Honda sustained severe injuries and were flown to Greenville Memorial Hospital for treatment. None of the four people in the Honda were wearing their seat belts.
The South Carolina Highway Patrol cited the truck driver for failure to yield the right of way. The Whitefield Fire Station and Anderson County Sheriff's Office also responded to the crash.
