Two Vehicle Crash Blocks Northbound Lanes of US25, Driver Flees on Foot

web posted January 20, 2014

COUNTY LINE A Merriwether First Responder reported a two car collision on Highway 25 at Hayes Drive around 5 pm Sunday. As he arrived at the scene to check for injuries, the driver of a pick-up assumed to have caused the crash, took off running down Hayes Drive. Within moments the driver of the second vehicle took off chasing the hit and run driver until he lost sight of him. It was also learned the truck the fleeing driver was in was stolen and had no tag.

Several Edgefield County Sheriff's Deputies converged on the scene and set up a perimeter in an effort to capture the run-away driver. He was described as a black male standing 6' to 6' 2" weighing around 180 pounds with dreadlocks. He was last seen wearing a white shirt and blue jeans.
Their search came up empty, however; they were able to learn of a possible identity of the man, who is believed to live in Belvedere.

The County Line Fire Department and Deputies directed traffic around the scene as the Highway Patrol began their investigation. The scene was cleared in a little over an hour. No injuries were reported, although one report stated the run-away driver may have had some type of injury, though it was not confirmed.

The Highway Patrol is in charge of the investigation.
