Man Killed in Bluffton Car Crash

A fiery early-morning car crash  left one man dead Friday in Bluffton, South Carolina.

According to officials with the Sourth Carolina Highway Patrol, the crash occurred shortly before 8:00 a.m. in front of the University of South Carolina-Beaufort-South campus on Highway 278. Police say 31 year-old Jason Webber was killed when he was driving a 1999 Honda motorcycle and struck a Volvo driven by University of South Carolina-Beaufort professor Susan Buelow, as she was attempting to make a turn. 

"The driver of the motorcycle was killed instantly," said Larry Kelley, a Lieutenant-Corporal with the South Carolina Highway Patrol. "…the driver of the volvo was transported to the hospital. … And a lot of times it's hard to judge the speed on a motorcycle, which is one of the contributing factors to so many accidents – people just don't pay them any attention."
