According to the South Carolina Highway Patrol the accident happened shortly after 8 p.m. on Verdae Boulevard. The student, 17 year old Lauryn Tyona Agnew of Easley was driving westbound when her vehicle hit a frozen patch of ice which was on the road. She then skidded and crossed the center line, running head on into a eastbound 2005 Chevrolet tow truck.
