The South Carolina Highway Patrol said Rice was driving a Ford Explorer that crossed the center line on U.S. 29 south of Anderson and hit another Ford Explorer head-on at around 6 a.m. Saturday.

Three people in the second Explorer were taken to the hospital. Boseman said one suffered a broken leg and another was to undergo surgery.
