On New Year’s Day, two teenagers died in car accident in Gaffney


On Monday morning an accident took place in Gaffney resulting in the deaths of two adolescents.

According to the findings of the coroner’s office, the collision took place on Old Post Road close to the intersection of Jeannie’s Lane at approximately 12:20 in the morning.

The teens were identified as Gabriel Evan Allison and Ashyln Blake Jones, both of whom were 18 years old, by the coroner.

According to the authorities, Allison was the driver of a 2010 Honda that was heading east on Old Post Road when it crossed the center line and collided with a 2020 Infinity that was traveling west on Old Post Road.

On collision, Allison was thrown from the vehicle because she was not wearing a seatbelt. It has been reported by the coroner’s office that Jones was kept under control.

Each was pronounced deceased at the scene of the accident.

The authorities have stated that it seems that speed was a contributing issue. In the later part of this week, autopsies will be carried out.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol and the Cherokee County Coroner’s Office are continuing their investigation into this collision which occurred earlier today.
