3 dead in Lancaster County car crash

This is a sad and strange story occurring just outside Waxhaw. According to an article in the Herald:
Van WYCK -- The bodies of three people who died in a crash Christmas Eve in Lancaster County were found down a steep embankment by railroad employees Tuesday.

Lancaster County Coroner Mike Morris arrived at the bridge at U.S. 521 and S.C. 75 near the Van Wyck community about 1 p.m. and pronounced the victims – Darrell Christopher Fisher, 48, of Catawba; his sister Jerilyn Fisher, 47, of Rock Hill; Jerilyn Fisher’s son, William Breon Fisher, 16, of Catawba – dead at the scene

Morris said based on talking to family members he and Highway Patrol determined the crash occurred between 11:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. Dec. 24. After checking with the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, they discovered one of the Fishers’ sisters reported the family members missing.

The car was not visible from the road, he said.
