I could not answer the question because I could see Mr. Morgan being covered by a sheet and could hear the painful moans of his wife.
Mr. Morgan was pronounced dead at the scene. Mrs. Morgan was seriously injured, especially her legs, and my Niece died weeks later in Emery Hospital in Atlanta.
Dara Bolding was an honor student at Daniel High School just a few short weeks from graduating.
She left Daniel High and was on her way to Morrison Elementary in Clemson to help tutor the kids that had fallen behind in their studies. Dara’s right front tire dropped off the thick asphalt buildup causing her car to fishtail into the path of the oncoming traffic.
Had she lived, Dara would be celebrating her 39th birthday this year and still few improvements have been made to this road.
Highway 133 is a busy narrow winding road, no Shoulders, Deep ditches and almost no places for safe passing.
Our county helps produce much of the clean water and power for the south east and yet we have high unemployment.
Most of our population is in the southern part of the county below highway 183. We need to improve North to South roads. This would provide safer passage on our roads, provide better evacuation routes for Duke Energy and provide opportunity for economic growth for our county.
We could be collecting tax at the point of sale instead of the county and cities imposing property taxes that cause owners to be unable to pay and lose their property.
Up to this point we have been unable to compete with the well oiled lobby machines of those who lobby for special concerns or needs on the other side of the tracks rather than to benefit the whole county.
