As an Orangeburg car accident attorney , I’m glad to hear that there weren’t more serious life-threatening injuries in this collision. I hope both victims in this crash are able to experience a full and speedy recovery. I urge teenage drivers to follow traffic laws and safe driving habits while they continue to learn to drive.
