Speed has been ruled a major contributing factor to a crash that happened on Jeter Street, around 6:45 Wednesday morning, Sept. 28. According to Edgefield Police Chief Ronnie Carter, who spoke to The Advertiser regarding the incident, a thirty-eight year old man was driving “very fast” along Jeter Street when he lost control of his vehicle going through one yard, across the middle of a second yard where he struck a shed/garage like structure and hit a car and a pickup truck, and then traveled on to a third residence where he collided with a house. The man was transported from the scene by EMS to a hospital in Augusta with what Chief Carter stated appeared to be minor injuries. No other people were reported injured in this crash. However, Chief Carter said there was a “good bit” of property damage as a result of this incident and called the damage to the vehicles involved “pretty substantial.”
There was no word whether or not any underlying medical issues could have played a part in this crash. The man involved was charged with driving too fast for conditions.
