Last Thursday,  a University of South Carolina sophomore was killed in a single-car collision off of Interstate 26, near Interstate 95.

According to the Coroner’s report, the 19-year-old student dies of blunt force trauma to the head, due to the impact of the crash. S.C. Highway Patrol investigators stated that the teenager was traveling eastbound, around mile marker 164, when her 1998 Mazda ran off the side of the road, subsequently striking a tree and catching on fire.

Interstate 26 had one lane shut down for upwards to five hours after the accident. This accident is currently still under investigation.
