MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (AP) – A South Carolina man has been arrested and charged in a wreck that killed a woman earlier this week.

Mount Pleasant police told local media outlets that 31-year-old Charlton Ross Griffith of Charleston has been charged with felony driving under the influence for the wreck on U.S. 17 Wednesday morning.

Police say Griffith ran into the back of a car that was stopped at a traffic light.
