Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From News.yahoo.com: “Lawsuit: Georgetown deputy at fault in car crash that injured man in Garden City”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A man involved in a car wreck with a Georgetown County Sheriff’s deputy is suing the agency, according to a lawsuit filed in Horry County court this month.

The lawsuit alleges a Georgetown County Sheriff’s deputy was at fault in a crash that took place Jan. 1, 2021 in Garden City Beach about 5:30 a.m.

David Ours said he was driving a moped and heading north on U.S. Highway 17 Business in Garden City Beach when Deputy Jonathan Mykal Wheeler was stopped at an intersection with Highway 17 and Secondary 154, according to the lawsuit.

Wheeler, who was driving a Georgetown County Sheriff’s deputy car, turned left at the intersection onto the divided highway and pulled out in front of Ours, causing him to crash into the driver’s side of the deputy’s vehicle, the lawsuit states. The wreck left Ours with an injury to his neck, his attorney said.

Wheeler is no longer employed with the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office, agency spokesperson Jason Lesley said. Lesley did not say whether Wheeler’s departure from the sheriff’s office was related to the wreck or lawsuit.
