Lugoff-Elgin High School graduate Chad Radvansky died of severe head injuries after his one-car accident on U.S. 76 in Marion in 2003. His mother, Lisa Radvansky, said that when she saw him in the hospital after the accident, he didn’t have a single broken bone; he was perfectly intact with the exception of a few scars. Chad was not wearing a seat belt at the time of his accident.
