More than 141,000 traffic collisions were recorded in South Carolina in 2017. Here's why there were so many.

A Rock Hill woman was killed and another person was injured in a two-vehicle York County fatal crash, police said.

Jacquelyn Matheson, 21, was killed around 9 p.m. Sunday on Paraham Road between Clover and Lake Wylie, said York County Coroner Sabrina Gast.

Matheson was wearing a seat belt and had to be cut from the vehicle by emergency responders. She died at the scene, Gast said.

The injured person, 31, from York, was taken to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte with injuries, said Trooper Joe Hovis of S.C. Highway Patrol. The injured person’s condition was unavailable Monday morning. That driver also was wearing a seat belt at the time of the wreck, Hovis said.

The two vehicles were heading in opposite directions on Paraham Road when the collision happened, Hovis said. A 2008 SUV driven by the person who was hurt was heading southbound while the Chevrolet driven by the person who died was heading northbound, Hovis said.

One vehicle crossed the center line and hit the other vehicle, troopers and coroner officials said.

Police did not report any passengers in either vehicle.
