A chase Saturday along Beaudrot Road ended in a wreck where a suspect's car hit a parked county vehicle, sending the suspect and a deputy to the hospital.
The chase started Saturday evening when a Greenwood County deputy spotted a driver who had previously failed to stop for a state trooper and in a separate case failed to stop for a deputy, said Sheriff Dennis Kelly. When the deputy tried to stop the driver again on Saturday, the driver sped off to avoid the officer.
Another deputy put out stop spikes on Beaudrot Road, and the suspect hit them, piercing his tires and leading the driver to lose control of the car. Kelly said the car struck a parked patrol vehicle of deputy Matthew Murphy while Murphy was inside.
Murphy and the suspect were taken to the hospital for treatment, with Murphy being released with minor injuries, Kelly said. He'll likely return to work after a few days of recovery.
The suspect, Kelly said, was still at the hospital as of about 9 p.m. Saturday. He said the man would be booked at the Greenwood County Detention Center once he is cleared and released.
