On May 20, 2022, a 16-year-old Estill High School student died in a crash in Hampton County when a Peterbilt gas tanker collided with her vehicle.
A terrible story – the Hilton Head Island Packet reported that the student’s car went underneath the gas tanker causing the tanker to explode.
This is a tragedy for this girl, her family, and this community. Our thoughts are with her and her family.
All accidents are preventable. South Carolina is one of the worst states for accidents and this one resulted in the loss of life. Our thoughts are with the victim and her family.
