A Savannah man has been charged with felony driving under the influence in connection to the death of a WTOC anchor.
Cleaveland Antwan Coleman, 31, was charged after he was released Tuesday night from Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah, according to a S.C. Highway Patrol news release.
Coleman is the accused driver of a pickup truck involved in a two-vehicle, head-on collision that happened around 4 a.m. Sunday on U.S. 17 near the Georgia state line in Jasper County.
The crash killed WTOC anchor Don Logana.
Logana was a backseat passenger and one of four occupants of a car heading north on U.S. 17, said Highway Patrol Lance Cpl. Matthew Southern.
The second vehicle, a pickup truck driven by Coleman, was traveling south when the two vehicles collided, Southern said.
Coleman will have an extradition hearing Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. in Chatham County Superior Court. He faces South Carolina charges of felony DUI resulting in death and two separate counts of felony DUI resulting in great bodily injury, the release said.
Logana was originally from Syracuse, N.Y., where he also began his career in television news. He had been covering Savannah and Hilton Head Island news for over 12 years.
Logana was the weekday morning anchor at WTOC and also was an investigative reporter.
The collision remains under investigation by the Highway Patrol’s Multidisciplinary Accident Investigation Team.
