1 dies in car accident involving suspected drunk driver

A motor vehicle could malfunction at any given moment and having to pull onto the shoulder of the road and check on a vehicle can be dangerous under any circumstance. Should a nearby driver veer even slightly off course upon encountering a broken-down vehicle, the results could be catastrophic. One person died during a recent car accident in which a suspected drunk driver veered off the road in South Carolina.

According to reports, the incident is said to have begun after a driver was forced to pull onto the shoulder of a road due to some form of vehicular malfunction. The two occupants of the vehicle notified an acquaintance who showed up to help tow the truck. While they were preparing the truck for transport, a nearby driver suddenly veered off the road and collided with the other two vehicles subsequently striking the passenger of the truck in the process.

Law enforcement agents have advised that the passenger of the first vehicle suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene of the crash. They have also advised that the driver who caused the crash is suspected of operating a vehicle while impaired. They say the man is currently facing charges for felony drunk driving causing death.

Losing a loved one in a car accident involving a drunk driver can be a devastating experience. Those who encounter such loss and wish to better understand their available options for restitution could choose to consult with an experienced attorney for guidance on how best to approach the situation. An attorney can evaluate the incident and assist a client in South Carolina in pursuing the full amount of compensation entitled through a wrongful death claim.
