Lowcountry elected official Katie Arrington is in a local hospital after she and a friend were seriously injured in a deadly wreck in Charleston County late Friday night, authorities say.
Arrington, 47, has undergone surgery for treatment of her injuries, and is recovering in a local hospital, spokesman Michael Mule confirms.
Arrington and her friend, Jacqueline Goff of Louisiana, were traveling southbound on U.S. Highway 17 around 9 p.m. Friday night, when another driver traveling in the wrong direction hit Goff and Arrington's vehicle, according to the Charleston County Sheriff's Office.
Goff and Arrington suffered serious injuries requiring hospitalization, but the driver of the other wrong-way vehicle died at the scene, CCSO spokesman Capt. Roger Antonio says. The Charleston County Sheriff's Office has not yet identified the deceased.

Wrong way on a highway at night usually means drunk driving...
I wish both ladies a quick and full recovery.
Prayer for the healing of these two women. We have a lot of these wrong way accidents here in AZ,
I didn’t realize she’s a Republican Congressional candidate....
Drugs, texting, streaming video ...
I believe she just beat a long serving RINO in the primary.
The Deep State really STRIKES BACK when they feel they’ve been double-crossed.
Nothing new here.
For those that do not know, Katie Arrington just won the GOP spot for the Novembers election against Mark Sanford
Not to be paranoid, but hope this wreck is investigated in a proper, professional manner. Rule out any sort of “Kamikaze” type attack. After all that has happened, and continues to happen, such incidents involving Republican candidates/officials need to be looked into...Scarcely one week since she won the election.
They are lucky to be alive.
He was not “long-serving.” The former governor of SC, Mark Sanford had recently made a comeback as U.S. Representative.
He had quite a lot of defenders on FR when he ditched his wife and four children - not to mention the state - to run off with a South American floozy. However, there has been no sign of them since he said something negative regarding Donald Trump.
I think you need take off the tin foil hat and relax a bit.
“”but the driver of the other wrong-way vehicle died at the scene””
Sorry - but he never knew what hit him. And probably too stupid to figure out he was going the wrong way..
The obvious guess is “illegal alien” but no info on the perp has come out.
Now I remember, he disappeared to Argentina.
Thanks for the correction.
“”He had quite a lot of defenders on FR when he ditched his wife and four children “”
Probably the same ones who supported Arnold for CA governor and castigated the rest of us....
