JOHNS ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - The sister of a recently deceased Summerville police officer died from a fatal head-on collision on the Stono Bridge late Tuesday night.
The Charleston County Coroner's Office says Abigail Blajszczak died from blunt force trauma. Blajszczak's brother, Officer Robert Blajszczak, died Saturday after collapsing from a traffic stop on Oct. 20, according to Summerville police officials.
The accident that took the life of 31-year-old Abigail Blajszczak happened at 9:39 p.m. near the intersection of Maybank Highway and Headquarters Plantation Drive and involved an SUV and pickup truck, police say.
Blajszczak died from the accident, while another person was transported to MUSC with non-life threatening injuries.
The bridge was closed for about three hours while police cleared the scene.
