South Carolina police were called to the scene of a terrible car crash on a recent Wednesday afternoon. A collision involving three vehicles slowed traffic in Spartanburg, near the intersection of East Blackstock Road and Arbours West Lane. Unfortunately, one of the drivers involved in the accident lost her life. Another was arrested and charged with felony DUI.
Police believe that a 43-year-old man was driving under the influence when his vehicle struck the back of another car that was stopped in a turn lane on East Blackstock Road. That collision pushed the turning vehicle into the lanes of oncoming traffic, which led to a head-on collision. The force of that collision led to injuries that ended the life of a 75-year-old woman.
