South Carolina woman accused of three-car crash

A woman was taken into custody May 15 on suspicion of causing a three-car accident in North Augusta. The 24-year-old individual was allegedly driving a Honda Civic at the time of the accident. According to the investigators at the scene, the woman is accused of hitting another vehicle during a traffic stop.

States advised to lower BAC levels

The South Carolina legislature, along with those of other states, has been advised to consider lowering current legal blood alcohol content limits from .08 percent to .05 percent by the National Transportation Safety Board. The NTSB makes this recommendation as part of an overall plan to reduce drunk driving accidents and deaths. Currently, drunk driving charges can be made if drivers have a blood alcohol content equivalent to more than four drinks per hour for the average 180-pound man; the change would mean the same man might register as impaired after consuming only two beverages.

Police arrest South Carolina driver after alcohol-related crash

A South Carolina man was arrested and taken to jail after an alcohol-related traffic accident just after midnight on April 29. According to police, the 55-year-old driver hit another vehicle at the 1800 block of Huger Street, and then tried to leave the scene.

Supreme court upholds blood test rulings

If a driver in South Carolina is pulled over under suspicion of DUI, the police may no longer administer a blood-alcohol test without permission or a warrant in most cases. This is due to a recent ruling from the Supreme Court where a man was given a blood test without his permission or a warrant, and two lower courts threw out the evidence because of it. The Supreme Court upheld the lower courts ruling stating that the dissipation of alcohol in someone's blood stream is not sufficient to override the requirement that police get a warrant before subjecting someone to a blood test. In the case in question, a man was pulled over after a police officer observed the man speeding and swerving. The man had two drunk driving convictions and failed several field sobriety tests. After he refused to take a breath test, the police officer took him to a hospital for a blood test but did not obtain a warrant to do so.
