Underage woman causes fatal accident, faces DUI charge

A 20-year-old Goose Creek woman is currently facing a DUI charge after she caused a wreck that resulted in the death of a 28-year-old man.

The accident occurred at around 2 a.m. on Interstate 26. The woman was driving an SUV erratically with the 28-year-old man in the passenger seat. The woman crashed into a highway median and then crossed over four lanes before coming to a stop in a ditch. The man was ejected from the vehicle and landed in the middle of the highway, where he was struck by another vehicle. He died at the scene of the accident.
