CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

A man accused of causing a six-car crash that killed a 9-year-old girl on I-26 has been charged with DUI felonies. 

Dale E. Yarborough was charged with felony death with DUI, reckless homicide and three counts of felony DUI with bodily injury Sunday.

First-responders with the City of North Charleston responded to a multi-car accident with reported injuries Saturday evening, according to Charleston County Consolidated Dispatch.

Dispatchers say a call reporting an accident in the area Cosgrove Avenue exit 216-A came in at 5:58 p.m.

Multiple police cars, EMS vehicles, and fire trucks were on scene.

A total of six vehicles were involved in the accident and six people were taken to MUSC for treatment.

Of those six that were injured, 9-year-old Da'Vieona Hamilton died as a result of the accident.

Yarborough is currently being held at the Charleston County Detention Center.

According to an incident report, Yarborough told investigators he remembered little of the incident. 

Bond was not granted bond for his Yarborough's felony death with DUI charge because he was already out on bond for domestic violence when the accident occurred.

He has a $75,000 bond for the reckless homicide charge and three counts of $25,000 for the three bodily injury charges.

The Principal of Sanders-Clyde School released a statement about the loss of her student:

Da’Vieona Hamilton was a special part of our Sanders-Clyde School community, and her passing is extremely hard on all of us. Her classmates and friends, along with our staff, are grieving right now.

We hope everyone in the community is truly focused on praying for Da’Vieona’s family. Their pain is unimaginable, so we will do whatever we can to support them.

Our school won’t be able to see Da’Vieona’s light in person anymore, and that hurts beyond compare. But we know her light is shining in a much better place now.

Thank you for your concern and well-wishes for her family.
