Man Dies After Collision with Drunk Driver

A 45-year-old man from Charleston died on Monday from injuries he received in late March that were caused by a collision with a drunk driver.

The man was driving on Highway 526 on March 24th at around 1:00 a.m. At this time, a 32-year-old man traveling in the same direction struck the man’s car from behind. The man was immediately taken to the hospital for serious injuries. The driver who rear-ended the man was found to be well over the legal alcohol limit at the time of the accident.

The drunk driver was initially charged with a DUI involving bodily injury. Following the man’s death, however, his charge has been increased to DUI involving a death.

Our thoughts and condolences are with the friends and family of the man who died because of this accident.
