Report: Deputies involved in collision were joining chase for suspect
Thursday, June 21, 2012

ORANGEBURG, SC (WIS) - The Orangeburg Times and Democrat is reporting two deputies that were involved in a collision Tuesday night were en route to join the search for a man who led authorities on a chase.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol says the deputies were responding to a call with their lights and sirens on around 8:45 p.m. Tuesday when the collision happened.

The T and D says the deputies were called to aid in the search for 23-year-old Jerry Young, a man known to have a suspended license and gang affiliations. The report goes on to say Young took officers on a two-mile chase before running his vehicle into a tree on Moseley Street.

Following the crash, Young hopped out of the vehicle and took refuge inside of a home on Bayne Street, where he was later found and arrested.

As for the two deputies, both were heading west on Highway 94 to aid in the chase and search for Young when troopers say one of the deputies attempted to make a left turn from the right hand lane. Troopers say the deputy was then struck by the second deputy on the left side. Both the cars involved are 2012 Dodge Chargers.

The accident is still under investigation by the Highway Patrol.
