On Christmas Eve in South Carolina, weather and road conditions are thought to be the cause of a fatal accident. Former news anchor Marty Matthews and her family were traveling on Interstate 95 to celebrate the holidays with her son, when her husband, driving the vehicle ran off the side of the road after losing control and struck trees on the side of the road.
The Cadillac SUV was no match for the rain-soaked roads. Even all occupants of the vehicle were wearing seat belts; 28-year-old Emily Austin was trapped and died at the scene, while the vehicle’s driver suffered critical injuries.
Marty Austin, in the front seat of the auto during the impact, was not injured.
The former news anchor worked at 10 News’ Life Around the Bay show for many years. Winning many awards for her work, she was considered to be a celebrated newswoman.
