Hanahan woman charged with felony DUI after deadly wreck

A 27-year-old Hanahan woman was arrested and charged with felony DUI in late January after being involved in a deadly accident in Charleston County. The woman is now facing several drunk driving charges, including felony DUI with great bodily injury and felony DUI with death, according to a news report.

The accident resulted in the death of a 35-year-old Charleston man and the injuries of several others. The woman would have been charged with a felony even if this had been her first DUI offense. She was already awaiting trial on a previous misdemeanor DUI that she had been charged with one year earlier.

The accident occurred when the allegedly intoxicated woman tried to correct herself after driving onto the median of I-526. It has not been reported if the accident victim was wearing a seatbelt, but authorities say that he was found on the ground outside of his Jeep when they arrived. The alleged drunk driver was also injured and taken to the Medical University of South Carolina. She was held on a bond of over $70,000 the following day.

Being charged with any DUI, even if it's a DUI first offence, can result in very serious potential consequences. In the case of the aforementioned woman, however, the DUI charges levied against her are so severe that she could receive what some may perceive as a life sentence in prison. An individual facing such severe drunk driving charges may need the help of a DUI lawyer to resolve the case.
