A truck driver who crashed through a deer with his truck during a road trip in North Carolina is facing charges.
John Williams, 55, of North Charleston, is charged with reckless driving.
He has been released from the Wake County Detention Center on a $1 million bond.
The crash occurred at around 3:30 p.m.
Saturday on I-40 near the intersection of I-41 and the Delaware River in North Charleston.
Williams was driving the truck that was struck by a deer.
He was taken to WakeMed, where he was treated and released.
He was arrested in North Myrtle Beach, N.C., and was taken into custody after he was caught on camera by WTVD News.
Williams’ attorney, James Buehner, told the station that he plans to hire an attorney and pursue his criminal case.
Williams has been a truck driver for 10 years, but never had a collision with a deer before.
He’s been with the company for a few years, he said.
He’s been involved in some of the craziest accidents that you’ll ever see.
We have a lot of fun, we do a lot, but we also have a family.
Williams is charged as an operator of a motor vehicle and as a person of interest in a hit-and-run crash.
