According to Highway Patrol troopers two people were sent to the hospital after an accident involving alcohol in Greenville early Saturday morning.
Troopers say the crash happened near the intersection of Ridgewood Drive and Highway 33 in Greenville. They say 18-year-old Joshua Jacod was driving three passengers in the car when he lost control. Two of the passengers were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Troopers say Jacod and two passengers had been drinking. They say Jacod is charged with reckless driving and drinking under the age of 21.
Sha-shana Jones witnessed the accident, she told WITN, "I see the car going to the lightpole. It hits the lightpole. BOOM. The boy then comes here knocking on the door ringing the doorbell saying 'help me my girlfriend's dying' so we called the police for him and everything. It was just a mess."
Greenville Utilities workers were at the scene all morning fixing the pole.
