SUMTER COUNTY, SC (WIS)- The driver who lost control of a pick-up truck leading to the death of his passenger over the weekend has been charged with felony DUI, according to the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
Billy Helms, 30, was charged after the crash that occurred Sunday morning around 4:45 on US 15 south of Sumter.
Troopers say Helms and his passenger, Michael Todd Chappell, 36, of Manning were traveling south on US 15 when he lost control and the pick-up overturned. Both were ejected from the vehicle.
The South Carolina Department of Public Safety State Transport Police graduated nine new officers today. These officers have trained at the Criminal Justice Academy for 20 weeks. This is the first time that STP and Highway Patrol recruits have trained side-by-side for the majority of their training period. The State Transport Police is a division of SCDPS.
STP is divided into seven statewide districts, and the new officers will be assigned among those districts.
