Deputies: 8 hospitalized after Dorchester Co. crash
DORCHESTER COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office says eight people, six of which are juveniles, were taken to the hospital following a Saturday crash.
The crash was reported around 11:25 a.m. on Highway 78 in front of Woodland Highschool.
A 17-year-old driver pulled out in front of another car and was hit, according to sheriff’s office spokesperson Lt. Rick Carson. The other car had two adults and five juveniles, Carson says. Three of the seven in that car are still in the hospital, according to a family member.
All eight were taken to a hospital. Three of the seven in the second car are still in the hospital, according to a family member.
One of the juveniles was taken to the hospital by air because of “distance of ground travel and injuries a little more severe than the others,” Carson says.
Carson also says that no one was thrown from either car.
