S.C. Teen Charged with Huffing while Driving, Hitting Woman

February 28, 2008  | 

A Lexington, S.C., woman was walking to a Wal-Mart Tuesday when she was hit by a car that authorities say was driven by a teen huffing aerosol cleaner.

A local high school student, Michael Cory Jones, 17, was charged with DUI and unlawfully possessing an aromatic hydrocarbon. Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts told the Columbia State that he is unaware of anyone else in his jurisdiction ever being charged with huffing while driving.

Deputies told the paper that Jones had been huffing the cleaner for several hours before he lost consciousness and the car he was driving struck the pedestrian, a parked truck, and a tree.

The woman was taken to a local hospital with a head injury. She was released hours later and is expected to recover.
