LONGS, SC – According to WMBF, authorities have arrested a man who allegedly led police on a high-speed chase that ended in a deadly crash near W Bear Grass Rd and Hemingway Rd on May 29.

An officer tried to pull over Gary Andre Wilson, 37, for driving 66 mph in a 35 mph zone when Wilson sped off on Plantation Dr around 6:30 p.m.

Wilson turned onto W Bear Grass Rd at a high rate of speed. Wilson then strayed off the road and rolled over. A passenger, Levious Hayes, 24, was ejected from the vehicle during the crash and died.

Authorities charged Wilson with reckless homicide, death results within one year caused by injury from vehicle, and failure to stop for a blue light with death results. They arrested Wilson on October 10 and booked him in a detention center with a $50,000 bond. Wilson is now under home detention.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol’s Multi-Disciplinary Accident Investigation Team is investigating the incident.
