Moses Donavan Rhinehart was hungry — that’s what the 56-year-old Greenwood man told officers who were responding to multiple crashes Monday at about 5:30 p.m., all blamed on him.
A motorist told officers a 2003 Ford Crown Victoria rammed her vehicle multiple times while she was stopped at a red light at the intersection of West Cambridge Avenue and Durst Avenue West. She pulled forward so he could go around her, and the vehicle proceeded to drive up on the curb and onto the sidewalk, striking a wall and a guardrail.
The vehicle continued west, striking two other vehicles before coming to a stop in the intersection of Cambridge and Calhoun avenues.
Officers noted the driver of the Crown Vic attempted to start his car, perhaps in an effort to flee, as they approached. When interviewed, the driver said he “did not know what was going on and that he was on his way to get something to eat,” according to an incident report.
He denied having a medical condition that could contribute to erratic driving and was checked out at Self Regional Medical Center before being booked.
Rhinehart, of 106 Pelzer St., was charged with a single count of attempting to leave the scene of an accident.
