Spartanburg authorities have charged a 39-year-old man with DUI resulting in death after a collision between a vehicle and a motorcycle left the motorcyclist injured and his two passengers dead. The man charged with drunk driving is being held at the Spartanburg Detention Center.
The suspect was driving a Nissan Maxima on Hwy 417 when he approached the 1970’s Suzuki motorcycle, did not stop, and struck it from behind killing two people near Hwy 101. The impact tossed all three people from the bike, and the one survivor was very seriously injured, and was airlifted to Greenville Memorial.
Thereafter, the suspect was taken to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center before being taken to the jail. He is being charged with two counts of DUI involving death, and one involving great bodily injury.
