RIDGELAND, SC (WTOC) -

The Ridgeland Police Department is investigating a fatal accident that occurred after three vehicles collided near the 18 mile marker of I-95 North on Monday afternoon around 4 p.m.

Investigators say the accident involved a white Ryder tractor trailer, a silver Chevy Malibu, and a black Toyota Matrix.

Due to weather conditions which prohibited airlifting options from the scene, EMS transported two subjects to Coastal Carolina Medical Center in Hardeeville, and three subjects to Memorial for treatment.

Of the three people transported to Memorial, a 53-year-old woman and her 82-year-old father from the Chevy Malibu, both ultimately succumbed to their injuries.

The accident impeded traffic flow in the area for 2 hours following the wreck.

This is an ongoing investigation. Stay with WTOC for updates.
