A South Carolina high school basketball coach has been killed in an apparent hit-and-run accident. The woman was traveling south on U.S. 52, with three minors in her car, when she swerved, apparently to avoid a head-on collision with another vehicle. As the woman attempted to investigate the damage to her car, another vehicle plowed into her and left the scene of the accident.
Sadly, after the pulverizing impact, the woman was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Williamsburg County Coroner. The children, who were involved in the first accident, were brought to the hospital and released that evening. The woman was a varsity basketball and volleyball coach.
Such terrible accidents unfortunately take place everyday. A mother drops her child off at school; another driver blows a red light resulting in an accident causing permanent disabilities for the woman. How will that family be able to pay for her medical expenses? How will the months of lost wages be brought back to pay for that late electric bill, or those missed car payments?
What if the woman was killed in the accident and the daughter lost her parent, a strong provider of the support a minor needs? How will her life change? We work to ensure that if you have been injured, or a loved one has been killed in an accident, we can work to get you the compensation you deserve. If the driver in the above tragedy is found, he will face criminal charges as well as possible civil charges.
