CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) on Monday arrested a man for a fatal Sunday-night crash that killed a passenger in his car.
According to CCSO, Brett Isaiah Baker-Goines (23) of Johns Island was driving a Dodge sedan along Main Road near Mary Ann Point Road around 11:00 p.m. Sunday. CCSO investigators said that the sedan “went off the road at high speed, struck a ditch and flipped before hitting some trees.”
Baker-Goines and two additional passengers were in the vehicle. One passenger was ejected, resulting in fatal injuries. Baker-Goines and the other passenger sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
CCSO determined that Baker-Goines was under the influence at the time of the crash. He was arrested on felony DUI charges and booked into the Al Cannon Detention Center, then released Monday on a $75,000 bond.
The Charleston County Coroner’s Office later identified the deceased as 23-year-old Ethan Linhart of Charleston.
