WITN Tower Cam shot of moped vs. vehicle accident on Arlington Boulevard

Police said the man who caused a wreck near Greenville Mall over the weekend is now facing a DWI charge.

Police Spokeswoman Kristen Hunter told WITN the driver of the moped involved in the wreck on Saturday night is now facing a driving while impaired charge.

That driver's name has not yet been released.

Traffic was tied up near the entrance of the mall along Arlington Boulevard around 10:45 Saturday night after the collision.

Hunter noted officers were not able to take a breathalyzer test on the moped driver at the time, so a blood kit was submitted to the State Bureau of Investigation to determine his blood-alcohol content.

The driver of the moped was taken to the hospital for minor injuries following the weekend wreck.


Greenville Police say that charges are pending in an accident that sent a moped rider to the hospital.

The collision happened on Arlington Boulevard in front of the Greenville Mall just before 10:48 p.m. Saturday.

A police spokesperson says that the rider of the moped was taken to the hospital for minor injuries.

Officials say they expect charges in the case but were not able to talk specifics at this time.
