Police: Fort Mill man under influence of heroin caused crash, injured two women

A Fort Mill man accused of driving under the influence of heroin caused a three-car crash earlier this week that sent two North Carolina women to the hospital, police say.

The wreck happened around 3 p.m. Monday on Spratt Street. Anthony Sean Oliver, 27, was arrested on scene and charged with possession of heroin and felony DUI, according to a Fort Mill police report. Oliver was booked Wednesday at Moss Justice Detention Center in York on a $120,000 bond.

Officers found Oliver unresponsive, laying on the side of the road next to his truck, with multiple cuts on his face and head, the report states. One officer found two syringes in Oliver’s pants pocket, which appeared to have black tar heroin residue, according to the report.

Police say Oliver was on drugs when he side-swiped another truck and then collided head-on with a sports utility vehicle.

The Waxhaw, N.C., women in the SUV, ages 64 and 62, were taken to a Charlotte hospital, according to the report. Both were discharged from the hospital several hours later but one of the women suffered a fractured sternum, police say.

York County court records show Oliver is currently awaiting trial on felony shoplifting and forgery charges stemming from two arrests by the Rock Hill Police Department earlier this year. Oliver has been arrested five times already this year, according to a State Law Enforcement Division background check.

Since 2006, he’s been convicted of several crimes, including criminal domestic violence, second-degree burglary, grand larceny, petty larceny and shoplifting, SLED records show.
