SC teen killed on highway named in father's memory

Apr 8, 2011 8:21:00 AM - thestate.com
Authorities say a Spartanburg County teenager was killed in a wreck on a stretch of highway named in memory of his father.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol says 18-year-old Aaron Shawn Hill was killed around 8 a.m. Thursday on Highway 129 in Wellford.

The Byrnes High School senior was pronounced dead at the scene. Two other people injured in Thursday's wreck were still in area hospitals.

The Highway Patrol says Hill was driving a Honda that was hit head-on when a Chevrolet pickup driven by 27-year-old Michael Blake White crossed the center line.

The stretch of road where Hill died is named for his father, U.S. Army National Guard Sgt. Shawn Hill. The soldier was killed in Afghanistan in 2008 when his vehicle hit a roadside bomb.
