Four Injured in Inman, South Carolina AccidentPosted on Nov 14, 2011
The accident occurred around 3:40 p.m. on Highway 9 when 18-year-old Amber Perry was driving her Ford Ranger east on Foster Road in Inman. She did not yield the right of way as she entered the Highway 9 intersection, causing her car to be struck by a sedan. Both vehicles ended up in a parking lot as a result of the crash.
Perry and the passengers of her vehicle, ages 14 and 17, were not wearing seat belts at the time of the incident, which caused them to be ejected from the vehicle. They were taken to local area hospitals and are currently being treated for their injuries.
The driver of the sedan, 48-year old Patrick Hines of Mills Springs, North Carolina, was wearing his seat belt at the time of the accident. However, he was trapped inside of his car and had to be extracted by emergency responders. He was transported by ambulance to Spartanburg Regional Hospital.
Perry was cited with failure to yield the right of way.
