Post-prom wreck kills SC teen

GREENVILLE, S.C. — A deputy coroner says an 18-year-old leaving a high school prom with three other teens has died from injuries suffered in a crash in Greenville.

Deputy coroner Barry Wright says Rikki Paige West of Belton died early Sunday of head and chest injuries. He says West received treatment from an off-duty doctor who happened upon the scene shortly before midnight.

The other teens were treated for injuries that weren’t life-threatening, as was the 21-year-old driver of the pickup also involved in the wreck.

Wright says the teens had left the Woodmont High School prom and were on their way to a bowling alley. He says the driver turned right from the left-hand turn lane, crossing all lanes of traffic. The pickup struck the car in the passenger door.
