Around 3:00 a.m., on interstate I-26, a South Carolina Highway Patrolman observed a vehicle speeding by at over 100 miles per hour. As the trooper attempted to pull the vehicle over, it was allegedly going so fast that he could not keep up, and lost the vehicle twice.
When the vehicle entered the curve near the Bennet Yard Overpass, authorities believe the vehicle struck the retaining wall, flipped over the interstate, eventually coming to a stop. When rescue crews arrived on the scene, the car was on fire with a male passenger trapped inside. The crew was able to get the passenger out, but he obtained serious injuries. The woman was charged with Felony DUI.
