A 29-year-old South Carolina man was arrested on drunk driving charges early last Wednesday. Police charged him with hit-and-run relating to a car crash that left his friend injured. The man faces charges of second offense DUI, driving with a suspended license and fleeing an accident involving injuries.
Fortunately, the 27-year-old man that was injured did not suffer catastrophic injuries. He was treated at a local hospital and released the following day. The arrested driver also escaped injury, but his criminal record, which includes a DUI conviction from another state, did not escape unscathed. Fortunately, though, the driver will not face felony-level DUI charges, which police originally tried to pin on him, because his friend was not injured badly enough.
