Troopers: Alcohol Involved In Weather-Related Fatal Crash

A driver has been charged with driving under the influence after a Mecklenburg County car crash that killed a South Carolina woman during the weekend storm.

Multiple media outlets report that that 24-year-old Hannah Floyd was a passenger in a car that hit a utility pole at around 3:30 a-m Sunday.

The driver of that car, Maegan Dcus, lost control on the icy interstate and slid off Interstate 85, crashing into a utility pole.

This was one of four vehicle related fatalities during the storm.

Also killed were a Greenville boy in a Johnston County crash, a person in an Onslow County accident and a child in Sanford.

The victim in the Onslow County crash has been identified as 49-year-old David Stuchal Jr. Authorities say his father, 76-year-old David Stuchal, was driving when the vehicle slid off the road and overturned.


The State Highway Patrol now reports four fatalities during the storm.

Reports indicate a Greenville boy died in a Johnston County crash, and there was also a fatal accident in Onslow County.

The Highway Patrol tells WITN News 6-year-old Jace Cole of Treybrooke Circle in Greenville was killed when the truck he was riding in crashed on U.S. 70 Bypass near Clayton in Johnston County Sunday night.

Troopers say Cole was wearing a seatbelt. They say the truck, driven by Cole's mother, Jenna Camp, struck an icy spot on an overpass and overturned. Troopers say Camp was not seriously injured.

Onslow County authorities say one person was killed in a single-car crash in Sneads Ferry on Highway 210 close to the entrance of the Stone Bay Rifle Range entrance Sunday morning.

The other two fatalities were in Charlotte and in Sanford. Reports indicate the Sanford crash killed a 7-year-old pedestrian.

    My heart is broken for all of the families affected, but especially for the mother. She had her child buckled up, but she probably couldn't have avoided the crash. May God comfort her during this time.

    During icy conditions, it is wise to SLOW DOWN and approach bridges with caution, squarely meeting the juncture of road and bridge. If you meet that intersection on an angle, you will change direction.

    I send my condolences to the families of the deceased. May they gather the strength to weather the loss of their loved ones. I especially would like to console the mother of the 6-year old boy. May God forever bless you with strength to endure.
