South Carolina Wrongful Death Near Charleston: Police Officer Dies In Fatal Car Accident

Two off duty police officers were involved in a serious car accident in Charleston near Chalreston. The crash happened in Conway at approximately 2:30 pm on July 2nd, 2009, and involved Officer Timmy Fulmore and Officer Pamela Hunt. Officer Fulmore sustained life threatening injuries to his body and was transported by ambulance to Grand Strand Medical Hospital in Myrtle Beach. Doctors at said hospital later announced that he had died from his injuries from the car collision.

Officer Hunt was originally transported to Conway Medical Hospital where she was initially treated for her injuries. She was later air lifted by helicopter to an area medical facility in Charleston, South Carolina, for the serious accident. At the time of this report there were no details available as to her medical condition. The officers were reportedly on their way home after being released from work earlier that same day and were planning on taking some furlough leave.

Howell and Christmas analysis and commentary. 2009 is proving to be a deadly year on the highways and interstates in South Carolina and especially on the coast. My experience with men and women in uniform across our state is that they more alert and safety conscious than anyone on the road. Summer months on the coast and in the low country are especially dangerous as tourists from other states take to our roads in great numbers and with no familiarity with local areas and hazards. Deadly South Carolina accidents like this one just go to show that we must all focus on the road and the other cars and trucks around us as we drive to our destinations no matter how short or far the distance.
