Man facing felony DUI charges following crash in South Carolina

A fatal accident in South Carolina has police seeking answers. Following the crash, a 27-year-old male was arrested and is currently facing several charges, including felony DUI. However, the reason behind the DUI charge is unclear, as information regarding whether or not any applicable tests, such as a field sobriety test or blood-alcohol test, were performed.

This particular accident occurred recently in Marion. The individual accused of causing the crash supposedly struck another vehicle head-on on a local highway. The female driver of that vehicle was killed in the collision and her passenger was transported to a nearby medical facility for treatment. The road was closed for several hours while police and clean-up crews worked the scene.

It is unknown if the man suspected of causing the accident was injured. He has been arrested and is currently being held in a local detention center. Along with the DUI charge, he is charged with driving without a license. At this time, it is unclear if any other charges will be filed in relation to this accident. It has not been reported if a court date has been scheduled for his case.

Accidents that result in a fatality are difficult for everyone involved, whether one is considered at fault or not. The individual accused of causing this crash may face serious consequences under South Carolina laws if he is convicted of this felony DUI charge, including substantial fines and possible prison time. A conviction can also take a drastic toll on his future personal and professional prospects. In an effort to produce the greatest achievable outcome for this situation, a strategic criminal defense can help this individual find the best solution for his specific circumstances and fight the charges at hand.
