Howard is wanted after a May 13, 2021 crash in Calhoun County, South Carolina. Investigators said Howard had methamphetamine in his system when he ran off the road and smashed into a large box truck parked in the emergency lane.

He’s being held without bond on two counts of driving under the influence resulting in death.

Howard also faces felony drug charges in Flagler County because deputies said they found crystal meth in a shirt pocket while searching him.
