      Wreck in Carolina Forest injures two people

      South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of a two-car wreck in Carolina Forest.

      It happened around 7:45 Wednesday morning on Carolina Forest Boulevard at Mill Street at The Farm subdivision.

      The driver of a pickup truck was trying to pass the driver of a Kia, according to Corporal Sonny Collins with South Carolina Highway Patrol.

      The driver of the pick-up David Ramos, 17, has been charged with DUI, according to Collins.

      Collins said Ramos went back into the lane too soon while trying to pass and the two vehicles collided.

      The pickup truck overturned and the driver was taken to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center.

      Parts of Mill Street were closed but are now back open.
