Rosemary Middle School Teacher Killed In Single Car Crash

Rosemary Middle School Teacher Killed In Single Car Crash

Injury attorneys of Charleston took notice of the Post and Courier’s report of a South Carolina educator that died in a single vehicle accident after the 29-year-old middle school teacher’s car ran off the road and overturned, according to authorities. The Rosemary Middle School teacher in Andrews was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and was ejected from the vehicle. The Berkley County Coroner reported that the accident caused fatal body and brain injuries.

The Huger woman was returning home from a trip to Charleston in her Chevy Cobalt, traveling eastbound. According to S.C. Highway Patrol, when the teacher’s car crossed the centerline, an overcorrection to right the vehicle caused it to flip into a ditch. In the minds of Charleston car accident lawyers, the most ill-fated feature of the mid-evening crash is that it took place only a half-mile from the teacher’s home.

Back in December 2005 the South Carolina Department of Public Safety launched an intiative to inform the state’s drivers that seat belt laws had changed. The change, which is still very much applicable, allows for law enforcement officers to stop a driver if they have a clear unobstructed view of the driver not wearing a safety belt or a child not secured in a restraint system. Not only will using a seat belt save drivers from fines, but it is also the easiest way to prevent deaths on South Carolina roadways.
