Man injured after getting truck stuck in trees

COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A man may face DUI charges after rolling his truck into several trees north of Cottageville on Saturday evening, officials say.

Colleton Fire and Rescue officials and South Carolina Highway Patrol responded to the 600 block of Rhode Drive just after 6:11 p.m. to find an older model Ford Ranger pickup standing up on its nose against several trees.

Officials said the man driving the truck suffered several non-life threatening traumatic injuries but was already out of the truck and walking around the scene.

He was taken to Colleton Medical Center for further evaluation.

The SCHP is attempting to determine if alcohol was a contributing factor.
