      LEXINGTON (WACH) -- The Lexington County Coroner TMs Office and the South Carolina Highway Patrol are investigating a three-vehicle accident that left one woman dead.

      Authorities say the crash happened just before 1 am Sunday, at mile marker 105 along Interstate 26, after the driver was driving on the wrong side of the Interstate.

      According to Coroner Harry O. Harman, Jennifer M. Lock, 28, of Columbia was driving a 2002 Saturn eastbound in the westbound lane of I-26 when she collided head-on with a 2007 Toyota Corolla driven by Michelle Bouknight of Irmo and a 2007 Mustang driven by Anthony Robinson, also of Irmo.

      Ms. Lock was entrapped in her car and was pronounced dead at the scene from severe head and body trauma.

      The other two victims were transported to area hospitals.

      The accident remains under investigation by the Lexington County Coroner TMs Office and the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
