Five people were killed in a traffic accident after one car drove in the wrong direction on a highway over the weekend.

The incident happened Sunday at about 2:15 a.m. local time in Laurens County, South Carolina, along Interstate 385, a spokesperson for the state troopers told the Associated Press. According to the outlet, the five people were passengers in two different cars, and four of them died at the scene, while another was pronounced dead later at a local hospital.
