Partial bond set for man accused of hitting and killing pedestrian in Hanahan police chase

BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A man accused of killing a pedestrian with his vehicle during a chase with Hanahan police, is waiting for his second bond hearing in Charleston County. Sidney Foy faced a judge in Berkeley County for two of his four charges.

Foy's bond was set for more than $32-thousand dollars altogether for two Berkeley County charges. They are failing to stop for blue lights and driving under suspension.
He's also facing two other charges in Charleston County for leaving the scene of a collision involving death and failure to signal a turn.

Foy's mother and fiance' say Foy told them that he was not aware that he hit and killed a pedestrian until officials told him while he was in custody. I reached out to the Charleston County Detention Center and at this time his second hearing has not been scheduled.

Officials say the three-minute chase started when a Hanahan Police officer tried to stop Foy from driving erratically in the Tanner Plantation neighborhood and failing to signal a turn.

Then, they say the slow speed chase turned into a chase reaching more than 100 miles per hour through the intersection of North Rhett Avenue and Remount Road. That's where officers say Foy's car ran into Dana Hughes, killing the 59-year-old.

Foy has at least 12 prior arrests, many of them for driving under suspension.

The Berkeley County judge set Foy's bond at $2,105 for driving under suspension and $30,000 dollars for failure to stop to blue lights. If guilty he can face jail-time for those two offenses ranging from 90 days to 3 years. Both charges are from the Hanahan Police Department.

Right now Foy is waiting for his second bond hearing at the Al Cannon Detention. Those charges are leaving the scene of a deadly accident and failure to signal a turn in Charleston County.
