BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A 65-year-old man was sentenced to 13 years in prison on Monday for felony DUI, authorities say.

South Carolina Highway Patrol Senior Trooper Bridget Wyant said Woodrown Baker Jr., of Goose Creek, was sentenced in connection with a wreck which caused great bodily injury to a 25-year-old Ladson woman in late 2011.

According to Wyant, the incident happened on Nov. 25 on College Park Road, when Baker was driving a Dodge van and crossed the center line, striking a female motorist in a 2003 Suzuki head-on.

The female victim suffered serious injuries but later recovered.

The case was prosecuted by Ninth Circuit Assistant Solicitor Jennifer Williams, according to Wyant.
