A South Carolina man is being charged with fleeing the scene of a motorcycle accident after he crashed his car into two motorcyclists. One of the riders was injured to such an extent that he lost his leg. The man was charged with DUI; however, those charges have been dismissed. The hit-and-run charges, on the other hand, will remain.
The driver was arrested at a bar a few hours after the accident took place. Further, the patrons at the bar reported that the driver told them that he was involved in an accident and admitted to drinking beforehand. The problem the officers are faced with is the fact that the man fled the scene, and they could not determine how much alcohol he had imbibed at the time of the accident.
The motorcyclists were seriously injured; one so seriously injured that his leg had to be amputated.
