One South Carolina teen is dead following a three car accident on Highway 129 in Spartanburg. 18-year-old Aaron Shawn Hill was killed just before 8 A.M. on Thursday April 7, 2011 on the same stretch of highway that was named in memory of his father, a slain soldier in Afghanistan. The Spartanburg Coroner's investigator, J. Dwayne Corn, said that Hill was killed after a truck crossed the center line and hit his car head on. The truck hit Hill's car first. The passenger in Hill's car was airlifted to the hospital and two other juvenile passengers in the car were transported via ambulance to the hospital as well. The driver of the truck, Michael White, then hit another vehicle and the driver of that car, Jennifer Bradley, was also taken to the hospital.

The accident is still under investigation but officals say that White did not have a valid license. He lost his license over a year ago for having too many violations; mainly speeding violations. He was driving home after working the overnight shift at an auto parts factory.

A Judge on Monday denied bond for White on 4 felony DUI counts.
