Carolyn Denise Underwood, 39, of Curvewood Road was on her way to work at 5:55 a.m. when her Toyota drove over a patch of ice, said Richland County Coroner Gary Watts.
Underwood's car crossed the center line of Clemson Road. It was hit by a Ford driven by Amanda McDonald, 26, of Columbia, said Lance Cpl. Josef Robinson of the S.C. Highway Patrol.
Underwood's car was hit on the passenger side. She was wearing a seat belt but died from massive trauma, Watts said.
