The driver and passenger in a third vehicle involved in the crash weren’t injured, according to troopers.

Troopers said Kristen Agard’s vehicle crossed the center line, hitting Hughes’ Nissan. That collision send Agard’s vehicle into the third vehicle.

Carlo Wilkes saw the crash happen. He’s still struggling to cope with the outcome.

“How fast death can happen, you know?” Wilkes said. “All I could think about was she was behind me and everybody in this accident was alive and just moments later, four people had died.”

Hughes’ cousin said she had a heart of gold and that they’ll be dearly missed by the family.

People who live in the area where the crash happened say they’ve been worried about that stretch of Saluda Road for some time. Some said they fear this won’t be the last deadly crash unless something’s done.

Pathology and toxicology reports are pending. SCHP and the coroner’s office continue to investigate.
