This past weekend was the deadliest on South Carolina roads in three years.  Ten people were killed between 6 p.m. Friday and midnight Sunday, the S.C. Department of Public Safety reported. Of those, five were pedestrians, including two men who were killed early Saturday morning when they were struck by a car while fighting in the middle of Two Notch Road.

The weekend fatalities also involved three motorists were not wearing seat belts when they were killed, the public safety department reported. Another person was a motorcyclist, and the 10th person was on a mo-ped.

The last time 10 people were killed in one weekend was in 2009, according to data provided by the Office of Highway Safety, which operates within the public safety department. On the deadliest weekends in 2010 and 2011, eight people were killed, according to the data.

Still, there have been fewer highway fatalities so far this year in comparison to the same period in 2011. So far, 682 have been killed in 2012; 719 were killed in the same period in 2011.

On Tuesday, two people added to the fatality statistics when a motorcyclist and mo-ped driver were killed in separate accidents.
