A SC Councilman has been named in a wrongful death lawsuit surrounding a 201o ca accident that killed a 70-year-old woman.

The woman driver was struck by four vehicles on November 4, 2010.  The driver of the first car that collided with the woman’s vehicle has pleaded guilty for driving under the influence.  The Councilman’s vehicle was the second car to hit; however, he argues that he tried to swerve and is not responsible for the woman’s death.  This argument is further echoed by the Councilman’s attorney.

According to the Coroner, it was impossible to determine which of the four vehicles were responsible for the woman’s fatal injuries.

The Councilman is being sued for over $5 million.
