Man killed and daughter injured in DUI accident

A South Carolina accident occurred earlier this week at around 8 p.m. according to law enforcement. The car accident resulted in injuries to two people and death to one.

A 1994 Dodge pickup truck was attempting to make a right hand turn when the driver lost control of the vehicle and ran off the side of the road. The driver then over-corrected, which caused him to crash into a 2001 Toyota Camry. The truck struck the driver's side of the Toyota. The driver of the pickup is believed to have had alcohol in his system at the time of the accident and is now facing drunk driving charges.

The driver of the Toyota, a 38-year-old man from Simpsonville, South Carolina, died on the scene after being trapped in his vehicle. His 15-year-old daughter, who was sitting in the front passenger seat, was also injured. She was transported to Greenville Memorial Hospital. The driver of the Dodge pickup was injured as well and was transported to the same hospital. The investigation remains ongoing.

The driver in this case could be facing serious penalties if found to be at fault for the accident. A criminal defense lawyer may prove to be useful to him in negotiating court processes. They may also be able to sort out evidence that may not have been collected according to procedure or prove that a driver may not have been over the legal BAC limit. A lawyer may also be able to negotiate for a less severe sentence.
