A man allegedly at-fault for a South Carolina crash that resulted in the deaths of two North Carolina girls and injury to six other people has been charged with reckless homicide. Additional charges could follow, as authorities did cite him for having an open container of alcohol in the vehicle. Authorities are waiting on toxicology reports.
According to news reports of the violent crash, it happened on Highway 17 Business near the Pirateland Camp Ground in Myrtle Beach.
The defendant was operating a Mercedes with three passengers traveling south bound when he collided with a minivan that was traveling north and then turning left. The van was carrying a family of five, including two girls, ages 11 and 9. They were pronounced dead at the scene as a result of internal injuries.
