Call it fate. Call it coincidence. Call it … well, call it dumb luck.

Police in South Carolina said a man driving drunk was unable to hit his brakes and ended up crashing into a … Brakes 4 Less shop.

The Greenville Police posted Facebook that 21-year-old Jaderric Kevon Freeman of Montgomery, Ala., ended up behind bars after the crash early Saturday morning.

Police said Freeman, who has been charged with DUI, collided with another car and lost control of his vehicle. He ended up crashing into the brakes shop and damaged more cars inside, police said.

The driver of the first car Freeman struck was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
