Woman facing felony DUI charges after striking moped


Many previous postings in this blog have discussed the varying levels of severity of drunk driving charges. When a driver is charged with driving under the influence, it is often a misdemeanor. However, under certain circumstances the charges may be upgraded to a felony. Those circumstances may be one or more of the following:

  • Death of another individual
  • Serious bodily harm to another individual
  • Head-on collision
  • High blood alcohol content

A South Carolina woman is facing felony DUI charges after her involvement in an accident that has left a moped driver in the hospital with serious injuries.

The accident occurred on a Sunday afternoon. A 30-year-old woman was driving a Jeep eastbound down Highway 544 when she allegedly struck a woman who was driving a moped. When medics responded to the scene of the accident the driver of the moped was transported to a nearby hospital where she remains in serious condition.

The driver of the Jeep had a passenger traveling in her vehicle with her. Neither of them suffered injuries as a result of the accident. The accident is still under investigation and just because the driver of the Jeep is facing felony DUI charges does not mean she is guilty. All defendants are innocent until proven guilty.

When people have allegedly been driving while intoxicated and it results in a felony DUI charge, or any type of DUI charge, they can potentially face serious penalties. The penalties vary by situation and are determined by the severity of the circumstances, whether the driver has multiple offenses on their record and much more.
