Clover teen is currently awaiting trial for an accident that occurred in late August of this year.
Accordingly, the 19-year-old is being charged with three counts of felony DUI; one of those DUI’s resulting in a death, and the other two resulting in great bodily injury, and driving under a suspended license. Sadly, this was not the first time the defendant has been charged with a DUI.
The police report states that the defendant was driving in his 1996 Infinity, when his vehicle swerved to the right side of the road, hit a tree, and subsequently flipped over onto the roof of the car.
All four people in the vehicle were ejected from the car at the time of the accident. One passenger was killed on impact. The driver/defendant and another passenger were taken by the paramedics to Piedmont Medical Center, and another was flown to Carolina’s Medical, via helicopter.
The police report states no one was wearing a seat belt.
Many states have both a felony DUI and a misdemeanor DUI charge. The determination if which type of DUI the person is going to receive is based on two main factors: aggravating circumstances and grave bodily injury or death as a result of driving while intoxicated.
