MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Newly released dashcam video shows the moment a Myrtle Beach police cruiser was struck by an SUV driven by a man who reportedly overdosed.

The video, filmed on Oct. 26, shows the police cruiser traveling on Mr. Joe White Avenue and pulling into the turn lane to make a left-hand turn onto Nance Street. It was then that the SUV crossed the center line and struck the cruiser head-on.

When South Carolina Highway Patrol troopers arrived on scene, they were informed by EMS that Narcan was administered to the SUV’s driver, identified as 37-year-old Joshua Adam Gamble, of Tennessee, because he had overdosed, according to an incident report.

Gamble was eventually charged with driving under the influence and driving without a license.  

The officers were treated at the hospital and later released.
