For those who work odd hours, a lighter commute is often a perk of the job. However, just because those who work overnight do not have to fight traffic congestion on a daily basis does not mean that their commute is without its dangers. Whether it be someone getting behind the wheel after having too much to drink or not getting enough sleep, late at night into the wee hours of the morning is often a time when those who should not be driving feel like they can get away with it.
Unfortunately, someone who should not have been behind the wheel might have been at fault in a deadly car wreck that happened in Oconee County, South Carolina in mid-November. According to WYFF-TV, the incident took place on SC 130 at around 6:30 a.m. Leading up to the wreck, the 62-year-old crash victim was driving home after working an overnight shift at the Oconee Nuclear Station.
As the 62-year-old driver neared Seneca, another vehicle traveling in the opposite direction crossed into his lane and crashed into his car head-on, killing him.
