  • FLAG MISHAP: Injuries reported during Confederate flag display.
Thanks to a reader for calling my attention to KSFM's report on a Confederate flag rally in Greenwood over the weekend.

An incident Saturday (July 25) night at a rally supporting the Confederate flag injured three teenagers in Greenwood, according to an eyewitness and law enforcement.

Rachel Yates was driving by it when she took several photos of the accident. She said three teens went head first into the rear window of a truck they were riding in. She said all three sat in the pick up’s bed when it rear ended the truck in front.
