The Darlington County Sheriff's Office has released dash cam video showing the aftermath of the wreck that killed Tyler Evans Terry, 23, and Amberly McKenzie Hunnicutt, 27, on West Old Camden Road April 2.
Darlington County Sheriff Wayne Byrd said Deputy Richie Stevens was trying to pull the Ford Taurus, being driven by Terry, over for speeding.
Byrd said Terry wouldn't stop, and went around a curve. The car slammed into a guardrail at Black Creek Bridge, rolled over, and then landed in the middle of the highway.
Byrd said Deputy Stevens couldn't stop in time and hit the car. Both Terry and Hunnicutt were pronounced dead at the scene, according to Coroner Todd Hardee.
Sheriff Byrd said Deputy Stevens clocked Terry going 77 mph in a 45 mph speed zone.
Deputy Stevens had a ride along in his vehicle. They were both taken to the hospital as a precaution and then released.
An incident report says the ride along was Charles Boan. Byrd told WPDE NewsChannel 15 Boan is a longtime volunteer with the sheriff's office, was cleared to ride with Stevens, and is covered by the county's insurance.
The attached video is a two minute clip from the dash cam video that was released.
