SC man charged with felony DUI in fatal crash

ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) - A 26-year-old St. Matthews man is charged with felony driving under the influence in a crash that killed one of his passengers.

The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg reports that Barry Walter Quattlebaum was charged Monday in a Sept. 14 crash that killed 21-year-old Sarah Ann Comer of Hickory Grove.

It wasn't immediately clear if he has an attorney.

Quattlebaum faces a maximum of 25 years in prison and a $25,000 fine if he is convicted. Authorities say Quattlebaum had more than twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system.

Officials say Quattlebaum's truck ran off a road in Calhoun County, overcorrected and struck several trees.

Comer died at the scene.
