GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The man accused of driving drunk the wrong way along Interstate 385 when he hit and killed a woman was denied bond in court Friday.

FOX Carolina's crews were in the courtroom for 26-year-old Andrew Glasier's General Sessions court appearance where a judge denied his bond because of the chance he may leave the country.

Greenville police said Glasier was driving south in the northbound lanes of I-385 on Aug. 12 when he hit 26-year-old Shauntia Jackson's car head-on, killing her. Jackson was following her husband home from Charlotte when the accident took place, police said. Her children were in her car and injured in the wreck.

"I saw the vehicle we were traveling in the far left lane, but, as it got closer, I saw that he was actually in the same lane as I was. And I swerved to the next lane and before I could notify my wife to move over I hear a boom," Delmar Jackson said.

Glasier was injured in the crash and was charged with three counts of driving under the influence involving great injury and one count of driving under the influence involving death once he was released from the hospital.

According to FOX Carolina's crew in court Friday, the judge said if Glasier ever decided to leave the country and return home to Canada, he may never return, so his bond was denied. Glasier's attorney has his client's visa in hand saying they would turn it over if he was granted bond.

Glasier's next court date has not been released.

A support fund was set up for the Jackson family. Sandy Dees, a spokeswoman for Greenville Memorial Hospital, said that people who would like to donate to the Delmar Jackson Family Fund can do so at any Woodforest National Bank, located inside area Walmarts.
