Kershaw County deputies charged two men after they observed a vehicle traveling an estimated 111 miles per hour early Sunday morning on Interstate 20, officials said.
Sheriff Jim Matthews said at about 4:15 a.m., a deputy assigned to the traffic unit observed a vehicle driving at a high rate of speed on I-20 near mile marker 90. When the deputy initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle, Matthews said he approached the driver side and spoke with the driver and could smell a strong odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle.
The driver told the deputy that he and the passengers were in a hurry to get home after going to a club in Columbia, Matthews said.
After a field sobriety test, Matthews said the deputy placed 28-year-old Terrance Mack Edwards, of Camden, under arrest for charges relating to second-offense driving under the influence and driving under suspension.

Matthews said Bobby Bernard Stuckey Jr., 36, of Camden, was also a passenger in the vehicle and was taken into custody after a records check revealed that he was wanted on three outstanding warrants.
Both men were transported to the Kershaw County Detention Center, Matthews said.
Edwards has previously been charged with disturbing schools, driving under suspension, open container, two counts of possession of marijuana and other traffic offenses, Matthews said. He was released from jail on bond.
Stuckey remains at the detention center for the three warrants which are for failure to appear in court, Matthews said.
