I looked at that intersection on Google Earth....I have a teenager driving now so I want to know the "hot spots" and that is a pretty big intersection. I'm sure there is a stop sign there but something must have blocked her view....maybe the sun or the trees (there are tons of trees right there) or both. But this is such a tragic accident. My heart breaks for her family. As a mother, I can only imagine what her mom is going through right now. I will be praying for this beautiful girl's family and friends.

Aiken County News - Charges against Ex-Councilman Russ Ferrara were dropped lacking probable cause as the State's case continues to fall apart like a cheap suite. Last week the Ex-Councilman was taken off house arrest and allowed to travel to Charleston County as Aiken County prosecutors scrambled and struggled to quickly obtain a plea bargain agreement on the remaining misdemeanor charges.
This case appears to have stemmed from a prosecution rather than an investigation, and during prosecution charges against deputy solicitor Brenda Brisbin for ethical misconduct were filed with the Office of Disciplinary Conduct, S.C. Supreme Court.
Defense attorneys representing the Ex-Councilman on the remaining misdemeanor charges are Andy Anderson and Everett Chandler.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. Anyone who knew Tracy is surely having trouble understanding how this could happen to a valadictorian and the safest 23year old driver I've ever known, but my life will surely be more fulfilling as Tracy is my inspiration to work a little harder. However, in the end its not what you've done for yourself but what you've for others that will stand the test of time....Note to children for concerned mothers, This intersection is dangerous due to a turn lane provided for cross traffic (on 378)to enter when making a right turn. vehicles crossing on 527 cannot see aproaching traffic especially if turning vehicles are large, like a meat truck. PLEASE? take a long look in each direction,...it may be your last.
Tracy.....we will miss you!

Surely heaven is rejoicing today as they have gained one of the sweetest, loving and gentle amongst us.
All who knew Tracy will forever remember her as a committed and loving daughter, sister and friend who stood up and spoke out for what she believed.
May all who cherish her memory be touched by the loving hand of the Father and find peace.

Tracy is truly one of the most beautiful and inspirational people I have ever come across. While I know her successes would have been boundless by her good spirit, extreme dedication, and ability to overcome any obstacle, she achieved something that I think we all seek to achieve in life in her mere 23 years—she made a huge difference in the lives of so many. This is a girl who, amongst many great things, literally led the blind around campus. She, along with all the things she taught me by simply being my friend, will forever be a part of my memory. My deepest thoughts are with her mother, father, sister and the rest of her family, whom she loved with all her heart. I feel extremely blessed that an individual like Tracy was a part of my life on Earth and know that she is in a much better place.

Russ Ferrara has also criminally "fixed" his property taxes to pay about half what adjacent comps are, for not only his palatial home but his apartments & other properties. He sure seems to be "connected" and protected from prosecution in Aiken County. The County Solicitor knows but doesn't care. Why is there no investigation of county corruption here? Who's on the take?

Circuit Court Judge Jack Early has ordered that Ex-Councilman Russ Ferrara be taken off of house arrest as the State’s case against the former Aiken County Councilmen weakens and appears to be falling apart. Apparently false allegations were leveled by a known crack whore who had recently received an eviction and trespassing notice from the Ex-Councilman acting as her landlord at a South Aiken apartment complex. A high-ranking official at the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office, who wished to remain unnamed, claimed that the stacked arrest warrants should have never been issued against the Ex-Councilman. Last year several of the initial charges were dropped lacking probable cause. In addition, the Aiken County magistrate who initially placed the Ex-Councilman on house arrest has since been charged with misconduct in office and sexual misconduct. He has been suspended from office. Authorities are further investigating unusual circumstances surrounding this case. The Ex-Councilman’s defense attorneys Andy Anderson and Everett Chandler were not available for comment.

We knew these were false allegations against him. This tenant was just trying to avoid the eviction or being vindictive, or both. He was one of the best county council representative we ever had in Aiken.

Aiken County News Tip

It was disclosed that the thirteen year old alleged victim who accused Ex-Councilman Russ Ferrara of inappropriate touching was undergoing sexual abuse counseling at the time of the alleged incident and had previously accused at least two other men of sexual abuse: one being her father. Earlier the alleged victim claimed that her father would enter her bedroom each morning at dawn and sexually assault her. Authorities were aware of these allegations which were much more severe than the allegation lodged against the Ex-Councilman, but elected not to arrest the alleged victim’s father. Authorities were also aware of the family’s attempt to obtain money from the Ex-Councilman to assist in release of the alleged victim’s sister from the Aiken County Detention Center.

the women who was being evicted had a rap sheet with the Aiken County Sheriff's Office that includes a conviction for criminal domestic violence for stabbing her boyfriend in the chest with a butcher knife. these false allegations were not made against this man until he issued the trespassing notice and eviction action against the alleged victim.

the women you're talking about is Kari Driggers and we think she's crazy and bipolar. it's hard to believe that the cops even took her story seriously. she has a history of claiming to be attacked by almost all of her past boyfriends. Just prior to this incident, she called the cops on her boyfriend, Chad Black, several times for beating her up. He got 12 years for burglary after breaking into another apartment early in the morning in the same apartment complex/building where a 30 year old single women lived with her young son.
