DARLINGTON COUNTY, S.C. (WBTW) — One person was killed Tuesday after two cars crashed and hit a house and other parked cars in Darlington County, according to South Carolina Highway Patrol.
The crash happened at about 3:33 p.m. at the intersection of High Hill Road and Rogers Road, just south of the City of Darlington, troopers said.
A 2016 Chevrolet pickup was traveling South on Rogers Road and a 2018 Toyota sedan was traveling west on High Hill Road, troopers said. Both cars crashed at the intersection. The Chevrolet then hit a house and the Toyota hit three parked cars and a house, according to troopers.
The driver of the Toyota was not wearing a seatbelt and was killed in the crash, troopers said. The driver and a passenger in the Chevrolet were both wearing seatbelts and were injured in the crash.
“Now they’ll see that we need a light here. Somebody got to die for you to see a light here. People house got to be bout gone completely for you to just get a light here,” Homeowner Mary Ross says.
Ross, who didn’t want to go on camera, also stated she recently had surgery for a 10 lb. tumor and that her mother told her Tuesday afternoon to go for a walk. That’s when she saw everything unfold right before her eyes.
“Cause I was going from the bed to the chair and she said well you may need to walk…walk to the mailbox and back and so I walked to the mailbox and back and that’s when I see all that. If not I would more than likely I’ll probably been in my bedroom.”
Ross says she and her family are working with American Red Cross at this time but they need to see some changes to the traffic lights in the area.
The identity of the person killed has not been released. No other information was immediately available.
