LADSON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Charleston County deputies have arrested a man they say is responsible for an accident that killed a woman in Ladson last month.

The suspect, 18-year-old Geraldo Johnson Jr., is charged with reckless homicide and  operating an uninsured motor vehicle.

According to officials, the accident happened on Lincolnville Road the evening of Jan. 25, killing Johnson's passenger, 17-year-old Stephanie Morales.

Deputies said investigators determined Johnson was driving too fast for conditions and failed to stay in his lane when he lost control and hit several trees. Morales was the only other person in the car.

According to the police report, neither Johnson nor Morales were wearing their seatbelts.
