Car accidents are far too often the result of intoxicated drivers

South Carolina residents have probably experienced or have seen the aftermath of an automobile crash. Whether motorists are distracted with cell phones, passengers or under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the resulting car accidents can be devastating. A 31-year-old woman has recently been charged with one count of felony DUI resulting in death and one count of felony DUI resulting in great bodily injury.

On Friday evening, a 58-year-old woman in South Carolina lost her life when an SUV hit her vehicle head on. The incident occurred around 7:08 p.m. The driver of the SUV was heading south and crashed into at least one vehicle that was heading north. A third vehicle was reportedly involved in the crash.

A passenger in the victim's north bound vehicle was transported by ambulance from the scene. Both the deceased driver and her passenger were not wearing seatbelts. Passengers in another vehicle that was reported to have been hit by the same SUV did not receive medical treatment. The 31-year-old was also taken from the scene by Emergency Medical Services for treatment. The South Carolina Highway Patrol is continuing its investigation into this tragedy.

Car accidents can change the lives of many. Family members can be left with medical bills and unforeseen costs that can be associated with the aftermath of car accidents. Anyone who has suffered injuries or the loss of a loved one due to the actions of a drunk or negligent driver could be entitled to financial compensation. A personal injury attorney can help devastated families understand their rights under South Carolina law.
