Two students from Charleston schools home for Christmas break have died in a crash in Aiken County.
Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton told multiple media outlets that 24-year-old Alexander Bush and 22-year-old Katie Scott died from injuries in the Wednesday evening crash.
Authorities say Bush's SUV was struck head on by a Nissan Pathfinder that was trying to pass another vehicle on state Highway 302. Scott was a passenger in Bush's vehicle.
Investigators say the driver of the Pathfinder was taken to a hospital, but his condition was not immediately available.
Authorities say the Pathfinder was going about 80 mph just before the crash.
