COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

One of the motorists involved in an early morning crash on Gervais Street has been arrested and charged with DUI, according to the Columbia Police Department.

CPD has apprehended 60-year-old Charles Prezioso, Jr. and charged him with DUI and failure to yield the right of way.

According to police, Prezioso was driving west on Gervais just before 7:30 a.m. when he turned in front of two vehicles and hitting a Coca-Cola delivery truck.

That truck, investigators say, then hit another vehicle.

Two drivers, including Prezioso, were taken to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

Prezioso has a previous criminal record with several other charges, including public drunkenness, DUI, cocaine possession, and breaking and entering.

Prezioso will be booked into the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center when he's released from the hospital.

Meanwhile, Gervais Street is back open.
