Drunk driving crash kills unsuspecting woman

A drunk driving accident that claims the life of an innocent driver makes us all stop and shake our heads. We read about them every day in Greenville and throughout South Carolina. Recently a woman was killed by a teenage boy, motoring down the wrong side of an interstate on a Saturday night, just about midnight.

It is difficult to think of much more than the innocent victim, who had no idea her life was about to come to a sudden end at the hands of a reckless driver. Life is short as it is, and to have it end prematurely in a drunk driving crash by the wrongful action of another is almost unimaginable.

Last month, a woman lost her life on Interstate 26 near downtown Charlestown. She was killed by a 19-year-old male driving on the wrong side of the road. The driver was charged with felony DUI. The woman died from her injuries. No information was immediately available about when the young man at fault will appear in court to face criminal charges.

The family and loved ones of a drunk driving victim are left only with grief and questions, resulting from the poor decisions of another person. Family members will require all the energy they can muster to overcome the grief associated with the accident that clearly should never have happened in the first place.

Most families in this situation take measures to ensure that the incident is fully investigated, whether in Charlestown, Greenville or elsewhere. Individuals responsible their tragic loss should be held fully accountable for their actions. An attorney experienced in drunk driving accidents and personal injury may offer some support and encouragement to a family seeking justice.
