LOWNDES CO., AL (WSFA) -
A Florida man is now facing charges in a two-vehicle crash that killed two Lowndesboro women in October.
Gerald Ingram Barrow, 61, of Winter Haven, FL, was arrested Wednesday and charged with two counts of reckless murder and two counts of reckless endangerment.
The crash happened Oct. 18 around 5 a.m. on Highway 80 in Lowndes County at the 110 mile marker. That's approximately three miles west of Lowndesboro and near White Hall.
According to a traffic crash report, Barrow had alcohol and drugs in his system when he was driving on the wrong side of Highway 80 and hit a vehicle head on.
Two women in the other vehicle, Sharon Gresham, 39, and Pearlie Gresham, 60, were pronounced dead on the scene.
Before the crash, at least three other vehicles had to swerve off the road to avoid hitting Barrow's vehicle, according to the report.
