Several hours following their companion’s revelry over winning a collegiate competition, the men’s golf team of South Carolina University encountered a disastrous accident attributed to an alleged red light violator. Fortunately, no grave injuries occurred.

According to Brady Gregor, an assistant coach for the Gamecocks, the incident occurred on a dual carriageway in Waynesboro, Georgia, which is approximately 90 minutes away from their base in Columbia.

While driving the van with a total of eight occupants, Gregor stated that their team vehicle was moving at approximately 40 mph when a Jeep Grand Cherokee disregarded the red light while turning left. Following this incident, both vehicles collided into a truck within an adjacent turn lane as reported by him. Furthermore, Gregor conveyed that although the other driver attempted to flee from the scene after travelling only about 100 yards due to damage incapacitating his SUV beyond repair it hindered them from doing so successfully.

According to Gregor, junior Nathan Franks – the recent winner of the Schenkel Invitational in Greensboro, Ga. on Sunday – sustained a hairline fracture to his elbow during the accident and was deemed as having incurred the most severe injury. Unfortunately for Franks, who clinched his second victory this season (2023-24), he will be unable to compete until at least SEC Championships due to recovery time required from said injury.
