NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) -

North Charleston police say that a man has been arrested and charged with DUI after a wreck Sunday night.

It happened at the US-52 Connector between Interstate 26 and Rivers Avenue.

Ivan Donovan Brown, 26, was arrested and charged with DUI and Failure to Render Aid.

Officers responded to the wreck after dispatch got a call concerning an accident with possible injuries and a possibly intoxicated driver who was attempting to flee the scene, police say.

When officers arrived on scene, they were advised that Brown had fled the scene on foot, and was attempting to hid in a wooded area behind Northwoods Mall.

Officers say they found Brown with a torn shirt, wet pants, and no shoes just socks.

Law enforcement on the scene attempted to conduct field sobriety tests, but Brown refused the tests, they say.

Brown's license was suspended for refusing the tests, reports say.

Witnesses at the scene told officers that they believed Brown was traveling at a high rate of speed, possibly 100 m.p.h., according to a police report.

The roadway was closed for several hours while law enforcement worked the scene.
