More than likely, it was a crash, not an accident. When you run off the road, you don't have to "overcorrect" to crash. The jolt of running off the pavement can jerk the steering wheel out of your hands and the car will be out of control, careening from side to side. It is very, very important to pay attention and keep the car on the road, especially in SC which is notorious for low shoulders along roads.

I find it very amusing that because someone crashes at 2:20 in the morning people automatically think someone is driving while intoxicated! Have you ever heard of shift work??? This man may have just left work and was heading home! Don't jump to conclusions until the facts come out!

I'd like to think that the people of Augusta are better than those who write on AOL and other public links. We are certainly entitled to your opinion but there are certainly times and places where tact and decency should be applied. They barely had any information on the accident and people start making rude and inappropriate comments. The AC really needs to look at this whole process.

Apparently the driver was not wearing a seatbelt, because he was ejected from his vehicle during the crash. No matter what other circumstances were involved, that oversite cost him his life.
