Teen Killed On Inner Tube

Posted on Aug 16, 2010
   A Georgetown teen was killed Saturday on the Black River in Western Georgetown County when the inner tube she was riding struck a piling. Eighteen-year-old Allison Howell and a friend were being pulled on an inner tube behind a boat Saturday. As it neared the Dunbar Road Bridge, the driver turned the boat around, propelling the inner tube into a nearby piling. Both riders were injured.

   Howell later died at Georgetown Hospital at 4:26 p.m., said Georgetown County Coroner Kenny Johnson, with injuries to her head and body.
