Coroner: Deaths in car wreck ruled homicide

Greenwood County Coroner Sonny Cox has ruled the deaths in Friday night’s fatal car wreck a homicide.

According to Cox, the woman killed in the wreck, 21-year-old Alisha Martin Boyter, was about 28 weeks pregnant at the time of the wreck. Cox said Boyter died as a result of blunt force trauma from the wreck. An autopsy was performed Sunday morning in Anderson.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol arrested 17-year-old Darius Andrews immediately after the wreck and charged him with one count of felony DUI resulting in death. SCHP officials did not release the name, but jail officials confirmed Andrews was charged in connection with the incident. Andrews will have a second count of felony DUI resulting in death added as a result of the death of Boyter’s unborn child. According to jail officials, Andrews has received a bond of $150,000 cash or surety, $75,000 for each count.

According to the S.C. Code of Laws §56-5-2945, Andrews is facing a sentence of up to 50 years in prison and a fine of up to $25,200.

Darius is not a bad kid at all he just made a bad mistake in his a good kid. Darius goes to my daughters school he was a good studnet,like most kids they do have family problems. I know him for 4 years now he was always polite wanting to finsh school he was so happy to be almost done with it to move on with his life and do better.Iam sorry for the other family for there lost he didnt do it like it was planed things happen yes he shouldnt been drinking that was stupid of him and he shouldnt be sitting in prison for life the 50 years is his whole life he has plan like the others did and it will not bring them 2 back from making him spend 50 years in there. If you knew him you would be thinking 50 years is too long maybe sometime but 50. It is ok to let a man rape a child gets 5 years and a kid that makes a mistake get 50 give him aaa or something eles then that.

If this man lives with his parents South Carolina law should hold the parents liable for his actions and allow them to be sued for the injuries sustained by this family. Economics is sometimes the only motivator of behavior.

Until there are harsh penalties for those furnishing alcohol to minors, this will continue to happen. There should be some jail time involved just for supplying or selling. If physical harm to someone results, then the crime should be upgraded to a felony with harsh sentences.

Shockingly, there are parents, yes, even here in Greenwood, who host parties for their children and serving alcohol so their children and friends will not have to drive afterwards.

Now that you dumba$$ parents have introduced all these kids to alcohol, how do you know they won't drink and drive next week?
So misguided and irresponsible, you are!

Yeah, I think local law enforcement knows about these things and under the former sheriff, something was actually being done. Not under this sheriff. Such a shame.

Whatever sentence this kid gets for his crime, the person who supplied or sold the alcohol to him should suffer the same fate.
