SUMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) -

A man is facing a felony DUI charge after troopers say he fled the scene after drunkenly crashing into a couple riding a motorcycle late Saturday.

South Carolina Highway Patrol officials said Rick and Cindy Wright were out on a date around 8:30 p.m. Saturday when they were struck on Highway 17-A by Daniel Sena, who drove off, leaving them and their wrecked motorcycle behind.

"He could see the fear on my dad's face when my dad went over the front of his car, and he wasn't man enough to stay…he ran like a coward," said the couple's daughter, Amy Blair.

Police caught up with Sena a short time later and arrested him. He is charged with felony DUI and leaving the scene of an accident with great bodily injury.

Rick Wright is suffering from broken bones and Cindy, who has beaten cancer three times, is suffering from a head injury.

"She can respond, when you ask question she squeezes your hand and wiggles her toes so she knows we're there […] they had to shave her hair completely off. She's going to be so upset when she wakes up," said Blair.

A judge set bond for Sena at $56,000 on Sunday night. He is being held in the Hill-Finklea Detention Center.

Blair says she wants Sena to stay in jail, and for her parents to get well, "I love them and just want them to come home soon."

Sena is scheduled to appear in court in December.
