Driver Charged In Greenville Crash

The driver of an SUV, that fell asleep at the wheel on Highway 264 in Greenville Saturday night and crashed, has been charged.

19-year-old Cornelius Keech Jr. of Grimesland has been charged with reckless Driving.

Trooper A.B. Smith told WITN Keech's 2002 Ford Explorer was heading west into Greenville on 264 when he fell asleep at the wheel around 8:20 p.m. and crossed into the grass median.

Keech then tried to over-correct and lost control of the vehicle flipping the SUV twice in the median just east of North Campus Crossing.

Seven people were in the Explorer at the time of the crash, including an infant.

There were injuries in the crash, but none appear to be life threatening. The infant appeared unharmed in the crash.
