According to reports, two vehicles collided in Lexington County when the driver of one of the cars allegedly ran a stop sign. The individual believed responsible -- a 39-year-old male -- was taken into custody shortly after the incident. He is charged with driving while impaired and causing great bodily injury. No further information about his case has been reported. 

The driver and passenger in the other car were both seriously hurt. It has been reported that the force of impact cut their vehicle in two.
