A fatal crash in South Carolina resulted in a 20-year-old man being charged with felony DUI and minor in possession of alcohol. The two-car accident took place on Johns Island around 12:30 p.m. on Aug. 16 and resulted in the death of the other driver. The accused driver was reportedly still recovering from his injuries at the Medical University of South Carolina when he posted $100,475 bail three days after the incident.
The alleged DUI incident happened when the accused man was driving an SUV and collided head-on with another SUV being driven by a 17-year-old female. The teen was pronounced dead at the scene. A police incident report stated that before the crash, the accused driver had been witnessed passing other vehicles at excessive speeds. After drifting off the right side of the road, the driver apparently overcorrected and crossed the centerline.
