Single Car Crash Ends in Arrest

web posted June 24, 2014

WESTIDE Edgefield County EMS, Westside and Merriwether Firefighters and Sheriff's Deputies were called to a single vehicle crash on Highway 23 around 3 pm Monday with reports the driver was trapped inside the overturned vehicle. When the first emergency crews arrived they found the overturned Ford F150 Crew Cab XLT on its roof, but no driver was inside. Family members on the scene identified the driver and said he was currently having an ongoing dispute with his wife and was making phone calls to her but refusing to give his location.

The driver (left), David Scarborough Jr., 29, of Cold Springs Road, was located about 40 minutes later at a home a few hundred yards from the crash scene. EMS was called to check Scarborough's injuries and was taken into custody. Due to Scarborough's actions, the deputy requested back up in addition to a State Trooper also on the scene at the time.

Scarborough was transported to the Edgefield County Hospital ER for treatment.

According to information on the scene, the roll-over crash happened at a slow rate of speed and very little damage was done to the truck. Tire tracks show the truck driving up an embankment until it rolled over and in a very short distance. There was no evidence of a violent crash, although a family member said Scarborough passed him a few miles before the crash scene "doing at least 100 (mph)".

The crash is being investigated by the South Carolina Highway Patrol and the possible domestic complaint is being investigated by the Edgefield County Sheriff's Office. He was charged with criminal domestic violence and is being held for charges from the Highway Patrol relating to the crash.
