A head-on collision on Fort Jackson Road (S.C. 12) where White Pond Road becomes Porter Cross Road resulted in the deaths of a young couple early Sunday morning. According to the S.C. Highway Patrol (SCHP) Lance Cpl. David Jones reporting on a media hotline, online Real-Time Traffic Information website, the collision occurred just after 6 a.m. More than four and a half hours later, at 10:40 a.m., SCHP’s Multidisciplinary Accident Investigation Team, or MAIT, was still on the scene. While the victims had long since been taken from the scene, their vehicles remained as MAIT conducted its investigation, with one -- the deceased’s 2002 Toyota four-door -- already up on a rollback.
