SC-11 Two car collision in Oconee County

SC-11 two car collision in Oconee County. 

OCONEE COUNTY, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating a collision that unfolded in Oconee County Thursday evening.

According to SCHP, the collision happened around 9:50 p.m. along SC-11, near Ridgecrest Road.

Troopers with the South Carolina Highway patrol tell us the crash involved two vehicles.  Highway patrol says a 1993 Ford Pickup was carrying a man and 8-year-old child when it was struck in the rear by a 2002 Chevy pickup, knocking it off the road, causing it to flip.  

Highway patrol says the driver of the Chevy was not on scene when help arrived, having already fled on foot, leaving the vehicle behind. 

Troopers say both the adult and 8-year-old child were transported to Greenville Memorial by helicopter. We're told they were suffering from non-life threatening injuries. 

Seneca FD responded to the scene with Westminster Fire as well. According to Seneca FD's Facebook page, both the adult and child had been entrapped in the vehicle. 

Seneca FD notes Thursday was a busy day for their B Shift, with nine calls before 3 p.m. These calls included another fatal collision involving a motorcycle and pickup truck, which we also reported on. Another incident saw an Oconee Co. deputy injured during a collision while responding to a chase.

Troopers are continuing to investigate the crash at this time.
