NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) - One person is dead after a fatal car crash near North Augusta on Saturday morning.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol responded to the crash around 4:30 a.m. Saturday. The crash happened on Interstate 20 west bound near mile marker 6, just two miles east of North Augusta. Three cars were involved in the accident.

According to Master Trooper James Miller, a disabled 2013 Chevrolet Impala was stopped in the middle of the road near mile marker 6 from an earlier accident.

A four-door Kia sedan traveling west on I-20 struck the abandoned Impala. The Kia was then struck by a 2012 Dodge Charger also traveling west.

The driver of the Kia and a passenger were taken to Augusta University Medical Center for their injuries. The driver of the Dodge Charger was not injured.

The Aiken County Coroner’s Office says the passenger of the Kia died from their injuries at 5:56 a.m. The identity of the victim has not yet been released.

SCHP and the coroner’s office are still investigating the accident.

It was Aiken County’s second fatal crash in a couple of days.

On Thursday, a single-vehicle crash killed Kirk D. Losier, 50, of Warrenville, on Whiskey Road at Partridge Bend Road, just north of New Ellenton. His truck struck a tree.
