NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Charleston County Coroner's Office has identified the three people who were killed in a two-car accident early Saturday morning.
Jaivon Pelzer, 25, of Goose Creek; Shanecquia Brooks, 31, of Goose Creek; and Jasmine Brooks, 26, of Charleston; all died at the scene from injuries sustained in the accident, according to Deputy Coroner Kelly Kraus.
North Charleston Police said the crash happened around 2 a.m. on Rivers Avenue at Remount Road, according to North Charleston Police spokesman Spencer Pryor.
Witnesses state the driver of a Camaro was traveling at a high rate of speed down Rivers Avenue when it ran the red light at the Remount Road intersection, colliding with a Chevy Impala that was traveling through the intersection, Pryor said.

Police closed down that section of Rivers Avenue for nearly eight hours as they processed the scene Saturday morning. As of 9:50 a.m., police said Rivers Avenue at Remount Road was back open.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
The Charleston County Coroner's Office will release the names of the victims in the crash.
