GEORGETOWN, SC (WBTW) – An investigation into a crash Monday afternoon that led to the fatal shooting of a man and his stepdaughter in Georgetown shows the shooter caused the collision, according to the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
Nick Wall was traveling on US 521 when he slowed down to turn into a driveway and was struck from behind by the car Ty Sheem Ha Sheem Walters, III., of Moncks Corner, was driving.
