COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The South Carolina Highway Patrol has charged a man with felony DUI after a crash Friday morning that killed a Columbia man.

Investigators say the accident happened around 7 a.m. near Monticello Road.

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts says a SUV driven by 52-year-old Lamont Hampton of Columbia was hit from behind and knocked off the road and into a tree. Watts says Hampton was trapped inside the vehicle and died at the scene. He was the only person in his vehicle.

The Highway Patrol charged the driver of the other vehicle, Perez Antwon Brooks of Sumter, with felony DUI resulting in death. Brooks was taken to the hospital with what the SCHP described as minor injuries.

Troopers blocked off one lane for several hours while they investigated the crash.

Bond for Brooks was denied.
