A fire department captain has been charged with driving under the influence after being involved in a wreck on a South Carolina interstate while driving a department vehicle.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reported that 44-year-old Mount Pleasant fire Capt. Robert Wronski was charged early Sunday after his fire department sports utility vehicle hit a disabled vehicle on I-526 in North Charleston.
The Highway Patrol says the other vehicle was on the edge of the road and the emergency lane.
The driver was being treated at the Medical University of South Carolina hospital.
Mount Pleasant Fire Chief Herbert Williams says Wronski is on administrative leave without pay during the investigation. Wronski has been with the department about four years. It was unclear if he had an attorney.
