Pickup Truck Driving on Wrong Side of Road Involved in Tragic Accident in South Carolina | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Virgil Mixon of Andrews, South Carolina (SC) was driving his Ford pickup truck down Highway SC 41, which is in Georgetown County, South Carolina (SC). One big problem: Mr. Mixon was on the wrong side of the road.

The truck attempted to make a left hand turn and smashed into a Ford Edge killing Mr. Mixon. My condolences go out to his friends and family.

 A mother and her two children were in the Ford Edge and their condition is unknown at the time, according to WMBF News.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol is thoroughly investigating the accident. As an injury lawyer who regularly handles car/truck accident cases, these questions need to be answered: Why was Mr. Mixon driving on the wrong side of the road? Was alcohol involved? Were there clear markings on the road to indicate the proper lanes?

As mentioned earlier, we don’t know the condition of the mother and her two kids, but I hope they make it through and fully recuperate if they were seriously injured.
