Three people were injured in a car accident Tuesday afternoon on Interstate 85, according to news reports.
The accident occurred around 4:30 p.m. at the 60 mile marker on I-85. According to the South Carolina Highway Patrol, the accident occurred when a 38-year-old man was driving a Chevrolet Tahoe southbound when he made a lane change and struck a Hyundai SUV, driven by 56-year old of Danville, Virginia; that was parked in the emergency lane. The Hyundai flipped over, while the SUV spun around and went back into traffic, where it was struck by an 18-wheeler.
The driver of the Tahoe was airlifted to Spartanburg Regional Hospital following the collision. A passenger in the Tahoe was also airlifted to the hospital after being ejected from the SUV. She was reportedly not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
The driver of the Hyundai was also transported to the hospital.
The Tahoe driver was charged with driving too fast for conditions, according to news reports.
Hospital officials told news reports that the driver of the Hyundai is still in serious condition.
