Serious accident closes South Lake Drive Sunday evening

Red Bank, SC (Paul Kirby) – Lexington County firefighters and crews from the county’s EMS responded to a serious accident on South Lake Drive Sunday evening. The call regarding the collision came in about 6:00 p.m. First responders reported it to be in the 2500 block.

When the first emergency responders arrived, they reported they had multiple patients and at least one heavily trapped in the wreckage. They immediately began calling for more equipment from EMS and the fire service. They also closed South Lake Drive for their safety and the safety of the people involved in the crash.

EMS personnel began caring for the patients while firefighters used special tools to cut and pry on the mangled vehicle to free the trapped. Several ambulances left the scene with multiple patients aboard. Law enforcement officers kept the road closed for some time as the crews worked.

Eventually, the wreck was cleared away and the road was reopened. The condition of the patients, including the one described as critical on scene, hasn’t been released. The SC Highway Patrol is overseeing the investigation.
