Six people were involved in a single car wreck in Indian Land early Sunday morning, Jan. 27, leaving three dead and three seriously injured.
The deceased have been identified by the Lancaster County Coroner’s Office as Sandra Coffey, 31, Crystal Johnson, 40, and Demarco Frazier, 30, all of Lancaster.
According to S.C. Highway Patrol, the 2009 Honda Accord, driven by Alicia Coffey, 27, of Lancaster, was traveling south on U.S. 521 shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday when it ran off of the right side of the road, hitting multiple trees.
David Hood, 22, and Christopher Hood, 33, both of Van Wyck, were also passengers in the Accord, which has a seating capacity for only five people. Both men were wearing seatbelts.
Pleasant Valley and Indian Land volunteer fire departments worked the scene for nearly five hours, with traffic shutdown in the south bound lane of U.S. 521 for part of that time.
