ANDERSON COUNTY, SC (WSPA) — A woman faces charges after deputies say she shot her husband inside a truck and caused them to crash with their 5-year-old in the backseat.

Kerry Vaughn Gosnell, 42, of Anderson, has been charged with attempted murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime and unlawful conduct toward a child by the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say the shooting happened just before 9 p.m. Sunday on Abbeville Highway near Gillespie Road in Iva.

Gosnell and her husband were traveling south on Abbeville Highway in their Dodge Ram pickup when they got into an argument that turned violent, reports say.

Gosnell is accused of shooting her husband with .38 caliber revolver while he was driving, according to deputies.

The victim lost control of the truck and veered off the road, flipped, and hit trees, reports say.

A deputy who happened to be traveling behind them, stopped to check on the occupants and provided assistance until EMS arrived on scene, according to reports.

Gosnell, her husband, and their 5-year-old daughter were taken by EMS to AnMed Hospital.

Deputies say the child was treated for minor injuries and released to relatives.

Gosnell was hospitalized for injuries in the collision. She was booked into the Anderson County Detention Center on Wednesday night, according to online jail records.

Gosnell’s husband also remains hospitalized and is expected to recover, deputies say.

Gosnell will be served with the outstanding warrants upon her release from the hospital, reports say.
