A sheriff’s captain and another person were injured in a head-on collision along Highway 146 near Woodruff on Friday, according to news reports.
The accident occurred around 4:45 p.m. when a Greenville County Sheriff’s captain was driving eastbound on Highway 146 when he was struck head-on by another vehicle traveling westbound, according to news reports.
Ice is believed to have caused the westbound Honda Civic to cross the center median and crash into the officer’s vehicle as he was headed home from work.
The 21-year-old driver of the Honda Civic was airlifted to Spartanburg Regional Hospital with injuries. The sheriff’s captain also suffered significant, but non-life threatening injuries, and was taken to the hospital.
The exact cause of the accident remains under investigation, according to news reports.
As a South Carolina car accident attorney , I urge drivers to drive very carefully on the icy roads. My condolences go out to the friends and families of these two men who were seriously injured in this head-on collision as they recover from their injuries. I hope both men are able to quickly recover.
