A 51-year-old South Carolina man was taken into custody and charged with felony DUI after he was believed to be involved in a wrong-way crash while under the influence that killed one person. The accident reportedly occurred on Feb. 23 on Interstate 20 at approximately 5:45 a.m.
The man was allegedly traveling east in the westbound lanes of the interstate with a suspended license. At mile marker 68, he allegedly collided with another driver. The other driver, a 41-year-old man, was transported to a nearby hospital where he died as a result of the injuries he suffered in the crash. The man accused of causing the wreck and a passenger that was in his vehicle were also both transported to a hospital, though their conditions were not known at the time of the crash.
