One person is dead and another injured in Mt. Pleasant, SC after their vehicle was struck by a speeding Porsche on Monday, October 4.
Authorities say the accident happened on I-26 around 1 AM. A 2004 Porsche was heading eastbound at a high rate of speed when it rear-ended a Nissan. According to an arrest warrant, the Porsche’s driver, 26-year-old Xavier Rosado, then fled the scene of the accident on foot. About twenty minutes later, he called police to report the vehicle as stolen.
Sadly, the Nissan’s driver suffered severe injuries and was later pronounced dead. A passenger in the Nissan was rushed to a local hospital with “great bodily injuries.”
Authorities soon caught up with Rosado and arrested him on charges of reckless homicide, leaving the scene of a crash involving death, and leaving the scene of a crash involving great bodily injury.
Speeding increases the risk of accidents, and also increases the risk of injury and death if an accident occurs. It is often a factor in rear-end accidents, in which the rear car can’t stop in time to avoid hitting the car in front. Motorists are advised to obey traffic laws and pay attention to their driving.
