BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP/FOX Carolina) — Two of three people killed when a pickup truck and a sedan crashed on a bridge over a body of water were students at South Carolina colleges.
Authorities say the crash happened around 2:15 a.m. Saturday when the pickup and sedan collided on the westbound Hilton Head bridges. The crash sent the truck into the water.
The Beaufort County Coroner's Office identified the victims Saturday as 23-year-old Tyler Cameron Carroll, 27-year-old Jonathan Green and 21-year-old Jordan Amari Johnson.
A University of South Carolina Beaufort spokeswoman said that Green was studying information science at the university. A Converse College spokeswoman says Johnson was a student there.
