MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Charges have been upgraded Sunday after a multi-vehicle crash shut down all southbound lanes of Highway 17 bypass near 29th Avenue in Myrtle Beach Saturday evening.
45-year-old Gregory Allen Glover has been charged with two counts of felony DUI and possession of cocaine after police say his 2013 Dodge 1500 started the wreck that sent at least six people to the hospital.
According to the MBPD, at least two victims required surgery for life threatening injuries sustained in the accident. The conditions of the victims is not known at this time.
According to the police report, officers responded to the accident at 7:55 p.m. and detected a heavy odor of alcohol on Glover’s breath along with ‘glossy, red and blood shot eyes’. Glover then denied to complete a sobriety test according to the report and was placed under arrest.
While being booked into Myrtle Beach Jail, officers report finding a ‘clear plastic baggy with a white powder substance’ in Gregory’s back pocket. The substance eventually tested positive for cocaine.
Glover has no prior convictions for DUI.
