A man was accused of drunk driving and causing a fatal crash involving five cars on Sept. 6 in South Carolina. The incident happened around 7:45 p.m. at Sheep Farm Road and Wells Highway in Seneca. Police allege that a 52-year-old man drove through a red light before broadsiding one car and then hitting three other vehicles.
A man in the first vehicle that was struck died at the crash scene. A woman in that same vehicle was transported to Oconee Medical Center where she later died due to neck trauma. Five other people were also injured in the wreck. Officers charged the 52-year-old man with two felony counts of driving under the influence resulting in death.
