Another Victim Dead From Wednesday’s Head-On Collision

Another person has perished as a result of the brutal crash on S.C. Highway 302  in Aiken Wednesday.

The victim was 22 year old Katie Scott of Couchton, who was in the same vehicle as 24 year old Alex Bush, a Charleston law student who also died in the wreck.

They were killed when their car was slammed head-on by an erratically-maneuvering Nissan Pathfinder SUV just before 6:30 p.m. The oncoming SUV was swerving around at speeds in excess of 80 mph upon impact, according to witnesses.

The parents of Katie Scott, who were with the pair at a local restaurant, were only three cars behind when the crash occurred.

The preliminary assessment is that the Pathfinder, driven by Steve Corley of Salley, was trying to pass someone in the westbound lane at insane speeds when he wound up in the eastbound lane. He was taken to MCG and escaped any life threatening injuries.
