WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

A Hollywood man is behind bars after driving recklessly and fatally injuring a passenger Sunday morning in West Ashley.

The Charleston Police Department says the accident occurred just before 1 a.m. in the Grand Oaks Subdivision on Ashley Gardens Boulevard.

According to police 27-year-old Steven Petit was driving a 2002 GMC pickup west on Ashley Gardens Blvd. from Westwind Drive, when he lost control and left the roadway hitting a culvert and overturned.

Officers say the GMC flipped ejecting the front seat passenger out of the pickup. Authorities say the passenger ejected from the pickup was pronounced dead at the scene of the wreck.

The Charleston County Coroner's Office has identified the victim killed in the crash as 26-year-old Matthew Pieronek from Charleston.

Officials say a 23-year-old passenger who was in the backseat of the pickup was uninjured.

Petit was taken to MUSC for minor injuries he sustained in the crash and was later arrested and charged with driving under the influence and reckless homicide.

Petit went before a bond court judge Sunday morning and received a $60,000 bond.
