The past Friday was a tragedy for two individuals who lost their lives while travelling down Interstate 77 in South Carolina.

The accident occurred early Friday morning, immediately outside of York County near mile marker 32, in Fairfield County. According to the police report, the crash took place when the driver of a 1974 Chevrolet SUV lost control of his vehicle while travelling northbound on the interstate. His car subsequently overturned and wound up in the median.

The SUV was carrying a male driver, and a female passenger, both of whom were ejected from the vehicle at the time of the accident. South Carolina Highway reports that both were pronounced dead at the scene.

The accident is still under current investigation, whereas it will be determined if alcohol and speed were contributing factors in the crash.
