Arriving deputies found a wrecked white Lexus at the scene and two witnesses who stopped following the accident. The two witnesses told deputies they watched the Lexus driving erratically down the highway until it crashed into the highway's cable-barrier median.
The witnesses told investigators that the vehicle's driver, Settle, then got out of the vehicle with her son and ran across the highway.

She was booked into the Spartanburg County Jail and charged with DUI - second offense, driving while suspended - third or subsequent offense, leaving the scene of an accident, hitting fixtures - failure to report, child endangerment and child neglect.
The boy was placed in the car of his grandmother while Settle awaits a bond hearing.
