Dense fog played a role in a multi-car pile up on Highway 52 north of Kingstree. On the morning of January 29, eight cars and a tractor-trailer were involved in the crash at the intersection of Highway 52 and McCutcheon Road. Vehicles were strewn across the highway, blocking the south bound lane for hours. South Lynches Fire Department responded to the scene and was assisted by the Williamsburg County Fire Department.
Low visibility from the fog may also have contributed to another car crash on the same highway. Within hours of the eight-car pile up, two vehicles collided in the same south bound lane. Incredibly, no one was seriously hurt in either of the morning destruction.
