NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - A three-vehicle crash sent two people to a hospital, took out part of a fence and led to traffic snags Monday morning in North Augusta.

Three cars were involved in the crash that was reported around 10:45 a.m. near where Edgefield Road becomes Knox Avenue. One of them slammed into a wooden fence.

Two people taken to a local hospital medical attention, but their injuries were not life-threatening, according to North Augusta Department of Public Safety Lt. Tim Thornton.

He blamed the crash on a “classic failure to yield.”

He said a vehicle made an improper left turn at a light in front of an oncoming car, and they crashed. As far as the third car: “Wrong place, wrong time,” Thornton said.

Southbound traffic in the area was slow as midday approached, according to Thornton, who urged drivers to use caution.

Charges are pending against the offending driver, Thornton said.
