McCreary's SUV overturned and struck a Honda sedan driven by Makeya Kinard,19, of Boiling Springs. 

McCreary and a passenger in the car, 64-year-old Anne McCreary, were transported to Greenville Memorial Hospital. They were each wearing a seatbelt. Rollins, who was also wearing a seatbelt, was also transported to Greenville Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.

Rollins was charged with driving too fast for conditions and driving without insurance.
