A head-on crash on S.C. Hwy. 14 in the early hours of Friday morning took the life of a Laurens woman near Gray Court.

Another driver was airlifted from the scene after the accident that happened at about 2 a.m. near Equinox Road.

The Laurens County Coroner’s Office listed the victim as Kasey Craigo, 28. Craigo was driving a 2016 Jeep SUV that, according to Lance Cpl. Justin Sutherland of the S.C. Highway Patrol, crossed the center line headed westbound and collided with a 2017 Kia sedan headed east.

Craigo died at Prisma Health Greenville Memorial Hospital at 10:15 a.m. The driver of the Kia was a 21-year-old, according to Sutherland. Neither vehicle had other occupants, and neither driver was wearing a seatbelt.

It was the eighth traffic fatality in the county this year and the first since early May.

An autopsy will be conducted.
