Rock Hill police report that a 19-year-old man ran his truck into a car and is being charged with driving under the influence, leaving the scene of the accident, and driving under suspension. Officers were called to the 1200 block of Dave Lyle Boulevard at around 9:30 p.m. after reports of a hit-and-run crash.
The 17-year-old driver of the Lexus was incoherent and suffering from a head injury. He also suffered an injury to his left arm. The driver of the truck drove home after his tire flew from his truck. The police were able to follow gouge marks to a house with a truck missing a tire. The man at the house admitted to driving the truck and police arrested him after detecting alcohol on his breath.
The officers administered a breathalyzer test on the man and found that his blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was at 0.09. In the state of South Carolina, if a person is found to have a higher BAC than 0.08, they can be charged with DUI.
