Details unclear in South Carolina DUI accident

While the man that struck and injured two partygoers last week was allegedly drunk driving, authorities are also considering other factors that led to the accident. A 31-year-old man is being held on $25,000 bail for a second-degree felony DUI, while the man injured in the accident is listed as being in critical condition at a local hospital. But some officials are wondering why the injured man was in the road in the first place.

On the night of the accident, the 25-year-old injured man was leaving a late-night Halloween party and walking in the road. The event attendees were provided with multiple shuttle buses, all free-of-charge, to transport them home after the party. In addition, 32 police officers, both uniformed and undercover, were present at the event. The event's website clearly included a warning the attendees should not attempt to walk on the road, citing the fact that there were no sidewalks in the area.

The injured man's father is asking why the event has to be held in what he calls the "darkest corner" of the road, near where the accident occurred. The man's father went as far as to describe the accident as including two victims, both the driver of the vehicle and his injured son. He described the event as being a "sanctioned rave."

In most DUI accidents, the blame is set solely on the driver, regardless of the events that lead to the accident. A judge will soon decide if the driver will face the maximum penalty for his alleged involvement in the accident, although it most likely could have been prevented by additional security or precautions at the event itself.
