CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The Charleston County Sheriff's Office has charged a 49-year-old woman with felony DUI in connection to a two car accident that injured three people in Ladson.

Deputies charged Julia Smith of Summerville for the Tuesday night accident.

Around 8:12 p.m., deputies responded to the area of Lincolnville and Ladson roads for an accident involving entrapment and injuries.

According to deputies, a Chevy suburban crossed over the centerline and struck a Toyota sedan traveling in the opposite direction.
