South Carolina man charged for fatal hit and run accident

A young man in South Carolina is accused of causing a fatal accident that occurred back in 2013. According to reports, a 22-year-old male was recently arrested and charged for what police claim was a hit and run incident. The charges in this case are quite significant, and the accused will face a number of potential consequences if a conviction is secured against him by prosecuting attorneys.

The accident this individual is accused of causing occurred last August. According to reports, a 20-year-old male, who was a passenger on a moped, was killed when the scooter was rear-ended. The driver believed responsible for the incident is said to have left the scene before police arrived.

According to a recent news report, the accused was arrested in another state and was extradited to South Carolina to face charges for this crash. He is currently being held at a local detention center. Charges against him include obstructing justice, causing a fatal hit and run and accessory after the fact. At this time, it is unclear what led police to this particular person.

The charges filed regarding this hit and run incident can have life-changing consequences for the accused, which -- if convicted -- may include prison time, hefty fines and other serious consequences. This young man does have the right to defend himself against the allegations for which he stands accused. With the assistance of an experienced criminal defense team, this individual can pursue a legal course that will best benefit his current situation.
