Three Indian women from Gujarat die in road mishap in South Carolina

At least three Indian women, who were from Gujarat, died in a road accident in the US state of  South Carolina, media reports said on Saturday.

Rekhaben Patel, Sangitaben Patel, and Manishaben Patel, all residents of Gujarat's Anand district, died as their SUV careened off the road, hurtling over a bridge in Greenville County, South Carolina, reported NDTV news channel.

The Greenville County Coroner’s Office told WSPA the crash occurred on Staunton Bridge Road over Interstate 85.

Investigators told the news channel an SUV was headed northbound on I-85 when it crossed all lanes of the interstate, ran up an embankment and went at least 20 feet into the air over the bridge and crashed into trees on the other side of the bridge.

“It is obvious they we’re traveling above the posted speed limit,” Chief Deputy Coroner Mike Ellis told WSPA.

The coroner’s office is investigating with other agencies to ascertain how fast the vehicle was moving.

Chief Deputy Coroner Mike Ellis said the car was found in pieces following the deadly crash.

“Very seldom do you see a vehicle that leaves the roadway at such a high rate of speed that it jumps 4-6 lanes of traffic and lands in the trees approximately 20 feet,” Ellis said. “When you got family, probably related, three deceased it is nothing that you want to ever see.”
