Two men charged in hit-and-run in Goose Creek
A manhunt Monday night in Goose Creek ended with two arrests in connection with a hit-and-run wreck, police said.
A vehicle containing three men struck a mailbox and at least two parked cars on Parkwood Drive in the Hayden Hill subdivision, Goose Creek police said. The three men ran from the vehicle, leading officers on a foot chase through the subdivision, an incident report states.
Officers caught up with one of the men, 40-year-old Gregory Seegers of Amy Drive in Goose Creek, as he walked down Montague Plantation Road toward the Boulder Bluff subdivision, police said.
The man told police that he was asleep when the wreck occurred but that his brother, 38-year-old Donny Seegers of Mary Scott Drive, was behind the wheel. The man’s 20-year-old nephew Ryan Seegers was also in the vehicle, police said.
Gregory Seegers told officers he was too drunk to recall in which direction his brother and nephew ran. He is charged with public drunkenness, police said.
Police found the other two men hidden inside a shed behind a home on Mary Scott Drive. Donny Seegers’ mother lives there, police said.
He is charged with reckless driving, hit-and-run with property damage and hit-and-run with an unattended vehicle, according to the incident report.
Donny Seegers was transported to Trident Medical Center for treatment of an injury to his arm and wrist received in the wreck, police said.
He was being held at the Berkeley County jail on Tuesday.
