Two college students were involved in a serious accident during Spring Break of this year that left one teen dead, and another seriously injured.

According to the South Carolina Highway Patrol report, the accident occurred on a Friday night, around 11:40 a.m. The two teens were travelling on Interstate 77 when they crossed over the North Carolina state line and into South Carolina. The collision happened one mile from exit 82, the first Rock Hill exit.

A preliminary investigative report states that the teens were driving a 2005 Mazda sedan, that somehow made its way off the right hand side of the road, striking a tree.

Both of the teens were taken to the hospital immediately, but only one teen was released. Unfortunately, the other teen lost his life in this tragic accident. The two boys were friends and classmates at Ohio Wesleyan University. The fatal victim will be greatly missed according to fellow students and professors.
