The owners of a longtime fixture and drug store in Ocean Springs are dead after a Thursday night car crash, according to Ocean Springs police who worked the one-vehicle accident just after 8:35 p.m. Thursday night.
The victims, Clark and Amelda Levi, both 46 years old, died after their vehicle hit a tree last night at the intersection of Shearwater Drive and Hudson Road.
Lovelace Drugs is located in the heart of downtown Ocean Springs on Washington Avenue and has been a popular business among ocean springs residents for decades. Back in May, the FBI raided the downtown Ocean Springs store, but officials did not share much information about why they were there except that they were conducting a law enforcement operation that was authorized by a federal court at that time.
The Levis were well known in the community, and many are grieving their passing this morning. We’ll keep you updated on this story as more information becomes available.
