There are many dangers in life, and these dangers often come from people who are behaving in a dangerous or irresponsible manner. When these people are out on the road, they do not only pose a danger to themselves, but to anyone else who happens to be using that particular stretch of road at the time.
An attempt to fix a car ended in injury for a 29-year-old woman. Her car stopped in the middle of the road, perpendicular to traffic on Maybank Highway on Wadmalaw Island. She got out to change her tire, and while she was doing so a car struck the other side of her vehicle. This caused her to be critically injured by her own car.
Investigators still don’t know why the car was stopped across the lane, but since it was parked in the right of way officials have not charged the man who hit her car with anything more serious than drunk driving. Deputies found the injured woman partially at fault because her car was in the road.
Investigators are seeking to charge the driver with a felony if they can. They say simply driving the car while drunk is enough of an illegal act for the driver to be charged with the greater crime.
