Charleston Car Accident, Hit-And- Run: Police Need Your Help

Charleston County Police need your help to find the driver of a sports utility vehicle (SUV) that hit multiple cars and gate before hitting a house. After abruptly coming to a halt, the unknown driver got out of the vehicle and took off on foot. Fortunately, no one was physically hurt in the Charleston accident, but was thousands of dollars in personal property damage.

The South Carolina hit-and-run occurred downtown on the corner of East Bay Street and Wentworth Street shortly after midnight. The 1997 GMC Suburban crashed into a parked 1999 Volkswagen and caused enough damage to the car that it was totaled. After totaling the Volkswagen, the SUV sideswiped a 1999 Honda Accord and a 2007 Mercedes, and then struck a Mitsubishi pushing the Mitsubishi into a BMW. The unknown driver damaged five cars before crashing into an iron gate at 21 Wentworth Street. The gate gave way and the driver damaged the home before coming to a stop the neighboring house, 23 Wentworth Street. Police said the damages to the houses were minor but damages to the five cars ranged from minor to severe. Witnesses told police that after the driver hit the house located at 23 Wentworth, they saw the driver get out of the vehicle and run from the scene. If you know any information about this severe hit-and-run accident please contact the Charleston County Police.
