3 hurt in Moncks Corner crash

  • Updated

Three people were injured in a two-vehicle crash this morning on Highway 52 near Moncks Corner.

The wreck just after 9:30 a.m. involved a 2010 Nissan sedan and a 2011 Chevrolet pickup at the intersection of U.S. Highway 52 and Old U.S. Highway 52 in Berkeley County. Firefighters cleared the scene about an hour later.

Cpl. Bob Beres, a spokesman for the S.C. Highway Patrol, said the Nissan's driver, 77-year-old Joan Chalmers of North Charleston, had stopped at a stop sign, then turned left from Old U.S. 52 onto U.S. 52. Her car crashed into the westbound Chevrolet driven by 53-year-old Gene Pipkin of Bonneau.

Chalmers and her passenger, who wasn't named, suffered serious injuries and were taken by ambulance to Medical University Hospital.

Pipkin suffered a minor injury and was transported to Trident Medical Center. His passenger, who also wasn't identified, was not hurt.

Rescuers had to cut at least one of the victims out of the Nissan, they reported.

Beres said all four people were wearing a seat belt.

Troopers continue to investigate the crash and had not yet determined any charges, according to Beres.
