AIKEN COUNTY, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - A series of crashes have kept local law enforcement busy on the first day back from a weekend when thousands hit roadways across the area.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol worked on three reports of accidents with injuries in three local counties:

  • Ridge Spring Highway at Spann Road in Saluda County.
  • U.S. Highway 178 at Heyblanchwell Lane in Orangeburg County. A roadway was blocked off.
  • Troopers say a 2013 Kia Koup and a 2017 Toyota Corolla were involved in a head-on collision at Cartledge Road and Highway 28 South in McCormick County. Both the drivers and a passenger in the cars were taken to the hospital. Highway 28 South was shut down temporarily.

Also, early Monday morning, a power line snapped in half after being struck by a car in Aiken County.

Deputies responded to an accident with injuries call at 2:33 a.m. at the 600 block of Edgefield Road, near Manly Auto Collision.

Deputies found a single car crashed into power pole, snapping it. The driver was treated for injuries, but we do not know the extent of those injuries at this time.

Despite a power line being hit, there were no indications that any nearby areas experienced power outages.
