Deputy cited at fault in wreck

web posted March 6, 2009
EDGEFIELD – An Edgefield County Sheriff’s Deputy was involved in a wreck Thursday just before noon at the intersection of Center Springs and Chapel Ferry Roads. Neither the patrol car nor the Ford Explorer involved ever made contact, however the Explorer veered off the roadway and went up an embankment stopping short of a stand of trees.   

Sheriff’s Officials and the South Carolina Highway Patrol responded to the scene and the State Troopers investigated the incident. The Deputy did not offer a comment on the scene; however, the driver of the Explorer said she was traveling down Chapel Ferry Road when the deputy pulled out of Center Springs Road making a left hand turn in front of her. “All I could do was swerve not to hit him,” she said

The SUV left the right hand side of the road and went up a three-foot embankment before coming to a stop. The woman, her infant child along with two other women with infants, traveling in the SUV said they were uninjured and one passenger stated it was a “bumpy ride”. The driver said she was “not going that fast” when the wreck happened which allowed her to stop the SUV before it struck the trees.

Neither vehicle sustained any observable damage in the wreck and the SUV was able to be backed down the edge of the tree line to a roadbed and driven away from the scene.

The deputy was said to have been cited as being at fault. It was unknown if the driver of the SUV or her two passengers were cited for not having the infants in child restraint seats. When they departed the scene they were still holding the infants in their arms as they drove away.
