Man charged in deadly 2018 Taylors crash denied bond in Circuit Court


GREENVILLE CO., SC (WSPA) – The Greenville County Solicitor’s Office said a man, who was charged after a vehicle he was driving crashed into trees resulting in the death of four small children in December 2018, appeared in Circuit Court on Thursday.

According to Marcia Barker, Arnez Jamison went before a Circuit Court judge Thursday, who denied Jamison bond.

We reported earlier that the crash happened on Dec. 9 on Mountain Creek Road near Mountain Creek Baptist Church in Taylors.

South Carolina Highway Patrol troopers said there were five people in the van that crashed, including four children and the driver — Jamison — when it ran off the right side of the road and hit several trees.

Three children died at the scene of the crash. The victims were identified as 4-year-old Arnez Yaron Jamison Jr., 6-year-old Robbiana Evans, and 8-year-old Jamire Halley. ​​​​​​Investigators don’t know if the three children were wearing seatbelts.

The fourth victim, 2-year-old Ar’mani Jamison, later died at Greenville Memorial Hospital.

South Carolina Highway Patrol charged Jamison with four counts of felony DUI resulting in death, driving under suspension-2nd offense, child endangerment, operating an uninsured vehicle.
