Facing any kind of criminal charges can be a difficult time for anyone, regardless of the circumstances of the case. When someone has to face a DUI charge in South Carolina, they may be looking at high fines, jail time, loss of a driver's license and other penalties. Those possible penalties may be even harsher if there was an accident that resulted in injuries and/or death in the case. A man was recently arrested and is facing a felony DUI charge as the teenager his vehicle struck died from the crash.
The 60-year-old man charged was driving near a high school. He collided with a vehicle being driven by a 15-year-old boy. The teenager died at the scene, and the man whose vehicle hit him was treated and released from a hospital.
