Early Sunday morning, around 3:50 a.m., two people lost their lives due to a violent head-on car collision near the Horry County line.

The accident occurred in Marion County, where the County Coroner Jerry Richardson has pronounced both drivers have since deceased.

Mitchell Day, age 19 from Columbia, SC, was taken to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center immediately after the collision, but was unable to sustain life throughout the night.  However, Ronald Frenchshaw Davis Jr. of Johnsonville, the other driver,  died on impact when the two vehicles collided on Highway 378.

Day was reported to have been wearing a seat belt when her Suzuki SUV was travelling westward on Highway 378, and struck by Davis’ 1995 Crown Victoria, which was travelling eastward at the time of collision.

There has not been any fault assigned to either party yet, however the police are still conducting the investigation to determine which vehicle crossed over the center line.
