Wreck site long known as dangerous

PETTICOAT JUNCTION -- A dozen freshly picked camellia blooms lay alongside U.S. Highway 278, the site where two Beech Island teen-agers collided with a tractor-trailer on their way to school. The blooms, as big as saucers, danced in the wind as vehicles sped by, most ignoring the 55-mph speed zone. There was little indication Tuesday of the tragedy at the site just a day earlier. Four miles up the road at Silver Bluff High School, where Josh Loveday and Jason Limehouse were juniors, flags flew at half-staff, much like the mood inside the brick schoolhouse.
