NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — A man has been charged with driving under the influence after authorities say he drove through a crash scene, sending seven people to the hospital.

Authorities say paramedics and firefighters were on the scene of a wreck early Saturday when another car drove through the crash scene.

The driver hit a firefighter, a paramedic and four bystanders. Those six people, plus a second firefighter, were all sent to hospitals to be checked out.

Police say 26-year-old Felix Garcia-Romero is charged with three counts of felony DUI. It wasn't known if he had an attorney.
