One teen died and the Inman community is pulling for two girls injured in the devastating car accident.


The accident happened Friday afternoon when the girls were headed to church. The girls were backing out of the driveway when the car was hit by an 18 wheeler. It happened on Lyman Road in Inman. The girls who survived the crash are being treated at Spartanburg Regional Medical Center.


14-year-old Carlyn Mitchell died in the accident. Her sister 16-year-old Chelsea is listed in serious condition, and a third passenger 14-year-old Lauren Trout is in fair condition.


At Friday nights game between Chapman and Chesnee Chapman''s cheerleaders were absent. Two in particular, Lauren Trout and Chelsea Mitchell.



"Everyone''s pretty upset. Team didn''t'' know whether to play or not, but decided to go for it and handle their sadness after the game," said Jonathan Thomas.



Trout and Mitchell are recovering from the tragic wreck that took the life of Chelsea''s 14-year-old sister Carlyn. The highway patrol says the girls were pulling out the driveway and got hit by an asphalt truck. Investigators say the driver of the 18 wheeler was not at fault.



Family and friends came to the nearby First Baptist Church in Inman tonight to grieve, the church is where the girls were said to have been headed.



Carlyn was a student at T.E. Mabry Middle School. The other two are students at Chapman High. Grief counselors will be on hand at the First Baptist Church this weekend and at both schools on Monday.


We talked to some people who live along Highway 292. They say it''s a dangerous stretch of road with fast moving cars and trucks and lots of hills and curves.
