Highway Patrol troopers have released the identity of a Berkeley County sheriff's deputy involved in a crash Monday night that sent six people to the hospital.
Deputy Justice Jenkins, 34, of Moncks Corner, was driving a 2010 Dodge Charger when he and a 2014 Chevrolet SUV collided at the intersection of Red Bank Road and Harbour Lake Drive, Senior Trooper Hannah Wimberly said.
Jenkins' lights and siren were on when the wreck occurred, she said. Details about the call Jenkins was headed to weren't available Thursday.
Paramedics transported Jenkins to Medical University Hospital. He was in stable condition and his injuries weren't believed to be life-threatening, according to Sheriff's Office spokesman Dan Moon.
Jenkins was discharged from the hospital on Tuesday, officials said.
An apparent family of five in the second vehicle, including a 10- and 13-year-old, were transported to Trident Medical Center, Wimberly said. The conditions of the minors and the vehicle's other occupants weren't available Thursday.
No citations had been issued in the wreck as of Thursday.
"The collision remains under investigation and the outcome has not been determined yet," Wimberly said.
Authorities are reviewing dash cam video of the wreck to further the investigation, she said.
