Two motorists died in a head-on crash Monday morning on Pine Log Road. The Aiken County Coroner’s Office identified the victims as Katris Tolliver, of Augusta, and Dale Allen Rhein, of Aiken.
According to South Carolina Highway Patrol Lance Cpl. Judd Jones, Rhein was the driver of a 2003 Jeep Wrangler traveling on Pine Log Road about 7:10 a.m. when he went off the right side of the highway near Huber Clay Road. Police believe he overcorrected his vehicle and struck a 2002 Toyota Avalon driven by Tolliver.
Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene. Rhein was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle. Tolliver did have her seatbelt on, authorities said.
