GREENWOOD -

Greenwood police have filed charges in a November 27 crash that left two people in critical condition.

In a news release, police say Derrick M. Means, 30, Greenwood, was charged with two counts of OWI with a prior conviction within 5 years resulting in serious bodily injury, a class C felony, two counts of resisting law enforcement causing serious bodily injury a class C felony, criminal recklessness with a motor vehicle a class D Felony and reckless driving a class A misdemeanor.

Means is held in the Johnson County jail with a $72,000 bond.

The release says police tried to conduct a traffic stop on an SUV driven by Means on suspicion of DUI. Officers said Means initially stopped at Madison Avenue and Euclid, and then sped off as officers approached his vehicle. The officers say Means entered the intersection of Madison and Main St. through a red light without slowing and crashed into another vehicle. It was occupied by two adults and a 6-year-old.

The adult occupants of the vehicle were transported to hospitals in critical condition. The child was not injured.

Means was also injured in the crash. Police later determined that Means' blood alcohol tested .243%, which is more than three times the legal limit.
