BRISTOL, Va. -

A woman is now recovering after Myrtle Beach, South Carolina after authorities say she was dragged 60 feet by a car driven by a Bristol, Virginia man.

75-year-old Robert Luis Doss is now charged with DUI. Emergency responders say a 20-year-old woman was hit by Doss' car, then dragged down the road.

Officers say Doss failed sobriety tests and refused to give a breath sample.

We've learned the woman is expected to be okay, but suffered broken bones and road rash.

Officers say Doss could face additional charges.
