MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – One person has been arrested in connection with a fatal crash Wednesday morning on Mr. Joe White Avenue that killed one person and injured two.

According to information on the Myrtle Beach Police Department’s website, Deborah Renee Bullock, 33, was charged with felony driving under the influence resulting in death and driving under suspension.

The crash happened after the suspect lost control of the Lincoln she was driving, crossed the center line and struck a Kia that was westbound on Mr. Joe White Avenue, according to an MBPD incident report.

Joan C. Banks-Miller, 64, of Myrtle Beach, was pronounced dead at the scene from internal injuries, Horry County Coroner Robert Edge previously said. The two other victims were taken to Grand Strand Medical Center for treatment of injuries sustained.

While police were on the scene, they reportedly noticed the suspect was swaying while on her feet, was lethargic and had constricted pupils, according to the report.

A search warrant for blood in reference to felony DUI was obtained. When the MBPD officer spoke with the suspect at Grand Strand Medical Center about the crash, she reportedly said she remembered a green light and then nothing after that.

When asked what she did prior to the crash, the suspect said she was “huffing dust cleaner from a can” between 6 and 7 a.m., the report stated.

After, the suspect allegedly went to the methadone clinic around 10:30 a.m. and took 100 mg of methadone, according to the incident report.

She then reportedly drove to two more places before the crash occurred.
