Man charged in fatal Aiken accident

A man accused of running a stop sign and causing a fatal accident has been jailed and charged with two felonies, authorities said.

William Currie, 48, is being held at the Aiken County Detention Center on charges of felony DUI with great bodily injury, according to an e-mail from Lance Cpl. Judd Jones of the South Carolina Department of Public Safety.

Chris and Stacia Mock were driving east on Reynolds Pond Road about 10:50 p.m. Saturday when Currie ran a stop sign traveling south on Pipeline Road and hit them, causing the Mocks’ Toyota to run off the road and hit a tree, according to Lance Cpl. Brent Kelly of the South Carolina Highway Patrol.

Stacia Mock, 43, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to an e-mail from Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton.

Chris Mock was taken to the Medical College of Georgia Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition Monday, according to a spokeswoman.
