Two people were transported to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte after a Thursday afternoon car accident in Fort Mill.

The accident occurred on Highway 160 just over a mile west of Tega Cay around 2 p.m. said Lance Cpl. Gary Miller with the South Carolina Highway Patrol.

A Fort Mill woman, 40, with two children in the back seat was pulling of a private driveway, Miller said. She was driving an SUV and failed to yield the right of way as she turned left onto Gold Hill Road.

The SUV was struck by a pickup truck that was towing a trailer with a backhoe on it. The driver, 37, and passenger, 20, in the truck were both from North Carolina. Both were wearing their seatbelts and neither was injured.

The driver of the SUV was wearing her seatbelt and was “entrapped,” Miller said. She was taken by EMS to CMC for treatment. Both children in the backseats were properly restrained. One was not injured, but the second was taken by hospital to CMC.

The crash is still under investigation and no charges have been filed.
