5 killed in accidents across Upstate

Posted: Updated:

Troopers were investigating four deadly crashes across the Upstate, including a deadly motorcycle crash that killed two people in Spartanburg County.

On Sunday, two people died in Chesnee after a driver hit the motorcyclists at the intersection of Peachtree and Shortcut roads about 2 p.m. Coroner Rusty Clevenger said the victims killed were 25-year-old Jeremy Phillips and 26-year-old Danielle Hazelrigg, both of Chesnee.

Troopers said search helicopters were called in to look for the driver who hit the motorcyclists, but no one has been found.

In Laurens County, troopers were investigating a deadly crash that happened on S.C. 101 three miles from Gray Court early Sunday morning.

Troopers said the driver of a Dodge van was headed north when it ran off the right side of the road and overturned. The driver was ejected and died at the scene, troopers said.

In Anderson County, troopers said about 8 p.m. Saturday the driver of a motorcycle lost control and the passenger, who was not wearing a helmet, died after the motorcycle hit a gate while crossing over Slab Bridge Road along Ross Road.

The coroner said 37-year-old Christina Lackey-Davis died at the scene and the driver was taken to Greenville Memorial Hospital with injuries. Alcohol and speed appeared to be factors in the crash, according to the Anderson County coroner.

In Oconee County, a Seneca man died after troopers said he lost control of his motorcycle while driving along Harbin Acres Road near Seneca.

The Oconee County coroner said 30-year-old Christopher Marchbanks lost control and crashed about 11 p.m. Friday, less than 200 feet from his home.

The coroner said Marchbanks' death was an accident and he was not wearing a helmet.
