Troopers said a man has been charged with felony driving under the influence after a deadly crash that blocked I-385 South near Bridges Road in Mauldin early Friday morning.

The crash happened around midnight.

The road was blocked until around 3 a.m. when lanes reopened.

Troopers said 30-year-old David Godino of Simpsonville was heading south when his car rear-ended a Saab that was also heading south. The impact caused the Saab to run off the road and crash into a ditch.

The driver of the Saab, a 54-year-old from Simpsonville, was taken to the hospital and later died. He was identified as James Hugh Rollins of Simpsonville.

Godino was arrested and booked into the Greenville County Detention Center.

The SC Highway Patrol MAIT team is investigating the crash.
