A police chase by way of two Midlands counties on Monday reached speeds of greater than one hundred mph earlier than ending at a development website in Kershaw County, based on authorities.
The pursuit began in Richland County but went east down Interstate 20 into Kershaw County at speeds of greater than one hundred mph, in response to the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Workplace, whose deputies assisted when the chase entered their jurisdiction.
The burgundy Mercedes exited the interstate at Exit 87 in Elgin, the place it traveled down S.C. 12 towards Lugoff and returned to I-20 at Exit 92 and exited again at Exit 98, in line with the sheriff’s workplace. The automotive continued north on U.S. 521 and through a development website on York Road in Camden, the place the driving force received out and ran away on foot behind a vacant business on a closed section of the street.
Deputies arrested the person at a tire store on Mill Road, the sheriff’s office stated. Contained in the automotive, they discovered “a large amount” of unlawful medicine.
The suspect, his automotive and the medicine have been turned over to Richland County deputies. Further particulars concerning the incident, including the suspect’s id and what prompted the chase, were not immediately out there Monday afternoon.
