PICKENS COUNTY, SC (FOX Carolina) - On Tuesday, a mother charged in connection with a fatal crash that claimed the life of her six-year-old twin sons, and injured her, has been denied bond in a Pickens County Court. 

Troopers with the South Carolina Highway Patrol have charged Jennifer Knox in connection to a fatal crash along Walhalla Highway Sunday, May 26. 

Knox was released from the hospital and is now in jail facing multiple charges including felony DUI, deputies say. 

On Tuesday morning, Knox's lawyer waived her preliminary hearing and the judge denied her bond.

At this time a date hasn't been set for her next court appearance but it could be in September. 

Her lawyer declined to comment to FOX Carolina. 


According to highway patrol, the accident took place along Walhalla Highway near Concord Church Road. 

Troopers say a 2005 BMW traveling north on SC 183 (Walhalla Highway) was attempting to pass another vehicle when it struck a 2014 KIA driving south head on. Troopers said the BMW overturned, and slid down the highway as a result of the crash.  

According to highway patrol, the BMW traveling north held three people, an adult female driver, and two six-year-old children.  Troopers say neither the driver nor children were wearing a seatbelt, and all three were ejected when the vehicle flipped. 

Troopers say the driver of the KIA that was hit head on was wearing his seatbelt and was not injured in the crash. 

The female driver was airlifted to Greenville Memorial Hospital.  The two children in the vehicle with her were transported to separate hospitals, but both unfortunately succumbed to their injuries. 

Later Monday afternoon, the Pickens County Coroner identified the children as 6-year-old twin boys, Dylan and Camryn Clark. 

The twins' aunt, Pamela Clark, spoke with FOX Carolina about the accident - saying the family is still in shock. 

"It's all so shocking and heartbreaking," Clark said. "[They were] the sweetest little twins ever."

 The father of the two boys will have the bodies sent back to Florida for funeral arrangements. His family set up a GoFundMe here.
