South Carolina man facing 2 felony DUI charges after fatal crash

Driving under the influence of alcohol is always dangerous. But, the truth is that sometimes the people of South Carolina make mistakes. Sometimes people do not realize that they have had too much alcohol to get behind the wheel of a vehicle and drive themselves safely to their destination.

Sometimes, this does result in car accidents leading to serious injuries or death, and for these reasons police and prosecutors are very tough on anyone who is suspected of driving under the influence. A South Carolina man is facing charges including felony DUI resulting in death and felony DUI resulting in great bodily injury after an accident that occurred last month.

According to a news report, the 27-year-old man was driving on State Highway 296 in Greenville County around 7:30 p.m. Dec. 29 when he attempted to pass another vehicle. According to authorities, while trying to pass this vehicle he hit another car head-on which resulted in the death of the passenger and injuries to the driver of that car.

While this accident was certainly very tragic, it is important for the defendant to see to it that his rights are protected. DUI charges are not the same thing as a DUI conviction, and it is important to mount a criminal defense and seek the best possible resolution.

Felony DUI charges are very tough, and they are also often emotionally-charged when an injury or fatality is involved. However, this should not get in the way of one's right to a fair trial.
