Authorities in South Carolina say the wrong-way driver who crashed into a car that carried a U.S. House candidate had hit another vehicle minutes earlier and drove away.

Charleston County Sheriff's Capt. Roger Antonio said 69-year-old Helen White struck the first vehicle Friday night as she turned onto U.S. Highway 17.

Antonio says White ended up driving the wrong way in the southbound lanes of the highway after the wreck and then slammed into the vehicle carrying Arrington.

White died, while GOP candidate Katie Arrington and the woman driving her were severely injured.

Antonio said in a news release both wrecks are still under investigation. He says there was no sign of alcohol in White's vehicle.

Antonio says no one was hurt in the first wreck.
