HANAHAN, SC (WCSC) - Investigators have charged a 27-year-old Charleston man in connection with a fatal collision in Hanahan this past weekend.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol charged Jacquan Terrinado Spann with failure to stop for a blue light resulting in death, felony driving under the influence resulting in death, possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, driving under suspension and simple possession of marijuana.

Megan Calhoun, 25, of Goose Creek, died after being ejected from a car, Berkeley County Coroner William Salisbury said.

The Sunday accident occurred near the intersection of North Rhett Avenue and Yeamans Hall Road, according to SC Highway Patrol Lance Cpl. Judd Jones.

Jones said the car was traveling east on North Rhett Avenue when the driver, identified as Spann, drove off the right side of the road, lost control and hit the curb.

The car then went into a ditch and struck several trees before returning to the roadway, authorities said.

Calhoun, the passenger, was then ejected from the vehicle.

Spann was transported to Trident Hospital for minor injuries.

He was booked into the Berkeley County Detention Center after being released from the hospital.

The crash happened shortly after a Berkeley County deputy attempted to make a traffic stop, Berkeley County Chief Deputy Mike Cochran said.
