Woman faces felony DUI charge

LANDRUM, S.C. — Authorities say a South Carolina woman who caused a fatal crash when driving the wrong way on an interstate has been charged with felony drunken driving.

Troopers say 33-year-old Traci Freeman of Boiling Springs was driving west on Interstate 26 near Landrum at about 5:20 a.m. today when she hit a car head-on with her minivan. Spartanburg County Coroner Rusty Clevenger said that car passenger Janice Carol Williams died at a hospital about an hour later.

It was not immediately clear if Freeman had an attorney. She was at the jail today waiting for a bond hearing.

Authorities say everyone involved the crash except Williams was wearing a seat belt.
