Dash cam video released from chase and crash that killed Hartsville pair

Posted: Updated:
DARLINGTON, SC - News13 obtained the dash cam video from a police chase in the Pee Dee that ended in a crash killing a young man and woman from Hartsville.

    The incident happened  early last month when  a Darlington County Sheriff's  deputy chased a vehicle on west Old Camden Road near New Market Road outside Hartsville.

Amberly McKenzie Hunnicutt, 27, and Tyler Evans Terry, 23, both of Hartsville died in the crash that happened around 2:30 am April 2.

The recently obtained video shows a cruiser driving along in the dark on Old Camden Road and suddenly coming upon an upside down car in the road. The cruiser then hits the car that contained Hunnicutt and Terry.

Darlington County Sheriff Wayne Byrd told News13 the chase began when a deputy clocked the car going 70 mph in a 35 zone and attempted to pull over the driver. The car went around a curve, out of the deputy's site.

The car crashed into Black Creek Bridge and overturned. When the deputy patrol car came around the curve, he couldn't stop in time and crashed into the car.

The Deputy involved was Richie Stevens, who was treated and released from an area hospital.  Sheriff Byrd also said there was a volunteer ride along in the deputy's car as well and that person is alright.
