Dashboard camera video newly-released to our Grand Strand News Alliance partner WPDE, shows the moment when a 37-year-old Tennessee man crashed head-on into a Myrtle Beach police car back in October.

South Carolina Highway Patrol troopers were called to the wreck around 8 p.m. on Oct. 26 to the corner of Mr. Joe White and Nance Street after a sports vehicle, driven by Joshua Gamble, of Copperhill, collided with the patrol car which was occupied by two officers at the time.

Gamble allegedly was overdosed at the time of the wreck, authorities previously told The Sun News. He was administered Narcan and everyone involved in the crash was taken to Grand Strand Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries.

Gamble was charged with driving under the influence and driving without a license, online jail records show.
