75-year-old woman charged with felony DUI for alleged role in tractor wreck

A 75-year-old woman has been charged with felony DUI resulting in death after she allegedly rear-ended a tractor driven by a 71-year-old Manning man on Friday. The tractor ultimately left the road and overturned, fatally injuring Clezelle White.
“(White) was transported to a local hospital, but he succumbed to his injuries there,” said Lance Cpl. David Jones with the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
According to Jones, White was traveling northbound on Raccoon Road near the intersection of Hector Walker Road when a 2010 Ford Mustang driven by Elaine Maggs allegedly ran into the back of his tractor about 11:35 a.m. Friday.
A Clarendon County magistrate judge denied bond for Maggs at the Clarendon County Detention Center. She will have to wait 45 days before she can petition for bond again before a Circuit Court judge.

    Sadly to say clarendon county is still just as racist as ever at the seen of the accident I notice 4 ems workers are voluntaries attending to a drunk white woman while a black helpless man lay over in the ditch. I pray that if I am ever in an accident these are not the ones I have to depend on. I feel even bad for you blacks that have to work side by side with people like this.

    Sad to see someone has to bring up racism in this tragic situaton. A man died and that woman’s life will be ruined. Worry about yourself and let God deal with the rest.

    If they established that the man was deceased at the scene, what would be the point of working on a dead body?

    Rose, if you read to comprehend you’d notice the article stated he succumbed to his injuries after being transported…meaning he was alive at the scene Sherlock. I’m from Manning and I’ve run into quite a few racist bastards while growing up. I would not be surprised to find out that a drunken old hag was made to be a priority over an innocent elderly black man. White bitches have ways of playing the victims. Everette says it’s sad that someone mentioned the racism they saw…but at the same to says remember that this woman life is ruined too. Another one victimizing this stupid old white bitch. Rip Mr. White.

    He didn’t die at the scene. It said that he was fatally injured and transported. He died at the hospital.

    Just an FYI on this horrible tragedy. The “woman” involved was not drunk. No alcohol involved. She did, however, suffer a stroke several years ago that affected nothing buy her speech. She is hard to understand, so was “presumed drunk” by the authorities. That’s all it takes for a DUI charge. Suspicion. Even if you blow a 0. She didn’t get drunk Friday morning and decide to go shopping in Manning. She has to live with this horrible accident for the rest of her life. The news media should have done some fact checking before their inaccurate reporting. It’s a shame that folks are so quick to judge. My heart is broken for the deceased man’s family and for Elaine, who will never be the same.
