When an individual makes the decision to drink and drive, he or she creates a high level of risk for each and every person encountered while on the road. When an accident takes place, a drunk driver will be held accountable for the choices made leading up to the incident. This is the case for one young man who was recently sentenced in a felony DUI case in Spartanburg County, South Carolina.
The 20-year-old man was charged with at least eight counts associated with a fatal wreck that took place in March. Police assert that the man allowed his vehicle to cross the center lane of travel and strike another vehicle head-on. In that car were a 43-year-old woman, her husband, mother and 11-year-old daughter. The woman and her mother were killed in the crash, and both the husband and daughter were seriously injured.
