Helen White killed and State Rep. Katie Arrington injured in collision with wrong-way driver on U.S. Highway 17 in Charleston, South Carolina
In a message posted to Twitter on Saturday, Democratic nominee Joe Cunningham said that he was suspending his campaign until further notice.
Katie Arrington and her friend, Jacqueline Goff, were headed south along Highway 17 in Adams Run when their vehicle was struck by White's vehicle driving in the wrong direction in the same lane, Charleston County Sheriff's Capt. Roger Antonio said.
Traffic investigators determined that minutes before the fatal crash, Helen White was involved in a hit-and-run crash a few miles south, Charleston County Sheriff's Capt. Roger Antonio said.
Newly released toxicology reports show the wrong-way driver who died after hitting Rep. Katie Arrington and her friend in a late June wreck had a blood-alcohol content nearly twice the legal limit.
