Tractor trailer rear-ends car near Furman campus, woman airlifted to hospital

Today a tractor trailer rear-ended a car near the campus of my undergraduate alma mater, Furman University in Greenville, SC. The lady in the car was airlifted by helicopter to Greenville Memorial Hospital.

How many hundred times have I passed that spot?

I’m scheduled to help judge the collegiate mock trial competition at Furman in late March.
