2 brothers dead after car accident in Huger

Posted: Updated:
Two Berkeley County brothers are dead tonight after a fatal car accident in Huger.

At about 6:30 Sunday evening, two brothers were riding in a Ford Focus down North Hampton Road, a forestry road that crosses Highway 41.
23 year old Chris Bracewell was driving the car and his 20 year old brother Jonathan Bracewell was in the car as a passenger.
The highway patrol says the vehicle failed to stop for the stop sign, and it was hit by another vehicle that was driving down highway 41.

Four people were in the second vehicle. They were transported to the hospital.
Both of the Bracewell brothers died at the scene. The deaths were ruled an accident by the coroner. 

Everyone in both vehicles were wearing their seatbelts.

A wreath was on the door at Judy's Automotive in Moncks Corner Monday afternoon. Chris Bracewell worked there, and the shop was closed Monday in honor of him.

The accident is under investigation by the Berkeley County Coroner's Office and the SC Highway Patrol.
