DORCHESTER COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Authorities say a 2-year-old boy died on Monday from injuries sustained in an accident in Dorchester County.
The Dorchester County Coroner's Office says Hunter Grant of Statesville, NC died Monday afternoon.
DCCO officials say Grant was a passenger in a vehicle his mother was driving on Highway 78 near the intersection of Highway 178 when the vehicle crossed the center line and hit another car head-on at 11:55 p.m. on Friday.
Officials with the coroner's office stated in a press release they were told by MUSC officials that it appeared that the child was not properly secured in his child seat, and the mother's possibility of being under the influence has not been ruled out.
