The 1967 AH-1F Cobra was parked on the side of the road as part of a local display set up by the veterans charity Celebrate Freedom Foundation.
According to a tweet from South Carolina Highway Patrol’s public affairs officer, the crash caused about $500,000 (₦181 million) worth of damages.
Part of the clip narrating the damaged helicopter stated that :
“This is what an impaired driver has done to a multimillion-dollar aircraft. Make sure you have a plan in place if you plan to consume alcohol and for heaven’s sake… don’t be like this guy.“
The Highway Patrol’s public affairs officer also tweeted:
‘Sober or slammer! The driver who wrecked into this helicopter was arrested for DUI! This holiday season, drink responsibly!!!!!!!!
‘It was sitting in a parking lot at the end of a dead end driveway…..Drink driver thought they were on the expressway by the airport when they were really in a parking area.’
