South Carolina man facing felony DUI charge after police chase

Morning traffic was shut down along a heavily traveled road after a fatal accident on Oct. 29. Police report that the incident occurred around 5 a.m. when a vehicle left the roadway and struck two other automobiles. A local coroner confirmed that a 33-year-old South Carolina man died from injuries sustained during the collision. The driver of the vehicle that left the road, a 19-year-old man, has been charged with DUI involving death and several other counts related to an earlier incident.

In addition to the fatality in the accident, the suspect and another individual also suffered injuries. The collision allegedly took place after police began chasing the man following reports of a domestic dispute. It is believed that the man had been in a fight with his former girlfriend which resulted in shots being fired. Police reports say that a vehicular chase ensued before the fatal accident occurred.

In addition to the felony DUI and charges related to the domestic incident, the accused man is also facing simple possession of marijuana charges. Multidisciplinary Accident Investigation Teams are investigating the collision, but local police are looking into the events leading up to the incident.

The accused man faces a litany of charges, and if it is found that he was under the influence of alcohol or drugs during the collision, the penalties could be even more severe. In all cases, though, police have the burden of proving that an individual was under the influence prior to their incarceration. With legal assistance, a person may be able to avoid the serious penalties that come along with a DUI conviction.
