4 dead after car hits building, catches fire
Wednesday, January 18, 2012

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Police say nobody survived after the car they were riding in early Wednesday morning hit a building and burst into flames.

Columbia Police Chief Randy Scott said the accident happened around 5:00 a.m. at 960 George Rogers Blvd. Scott said 4 people were inside the vehicle when it crashed at a high speed into the Farm Bureau Insurance Building. The car caught fire and nobody was able to escape.

George Rogers Blvd. from Bluff Rd. to Rosewood Dr. near the state fairgrounds was closed for several hours, but was opened back up to traffic around 10:00 a.m.

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts says it will likely be two days before he can release the victims' identities.

The exact cause of the accident is still under investigation. The Richland County Coroner's Office is assisting the Columbia Police Department with the investigation.
