Eight people, including a fire-rescue worker, were injured in a five-car wreck. The driver who initiated the multi-vehicle accident, Angela Shoe, had numerous traffic violations on her record and was charged with DWI (Driving While Impaired), according to reflector.com.
The accident took place at the intersection of Greenville Boulevard and East 10th Street in Greenville, South Carolina (SC).
The fire-rescue worker, 20-year-old Brian Spruill, was driving a Fire Department pickup truck at the time of the accident. Fortunately, rescue workers responded quickly to the scene of the accident and Brian, along with the other drivers, were taken to the hospital for treatment.
Fortunately, no one was killed in this crash, but the injuries sustained and damage done to the vehicles involved will probably take some time to sort out. As an injury lawyer who regularly handles car accident cases, I understand the various steps a driver needs to take in order file a claim with their insurance company and potentially seek damages if they suffered a serious injury. It's not a quick process.
An investigation has been conducted by the Greenville Police Department, but a narrative of what exactly happened hasn't been released. With Mrs. Shoe receiving a DWI charge, there are really no questions about her liability as a cause of the accident circumstances.
