BONNEAU — A Berkeley County sheriff's deputy was transported to the hospital following a crash that left another person dead.
Just after 10 a.m. on Feb. 23, the deputy, driving a 2019 Chevy Tahoe, traveled west on U.S. 52, on his way to assist St. Stephens police. His emergency equipment was activated, said Lance Cpl. Tyler Tidwell with the S.C. Highway Patrol.
A 1984 Toyota pick-up truck with two occupants was trying to turn left from Shelly Street onto U.S. 52 when the vehicles collided, Tidwell said.
The driver of the Toyota died, Tidwell said. Neither that individual nor any other people involved have been publicly identified.
All of the people in the collision were wearing seatbelts, Tidwell added.
The Berkeley County deputy, part of the department's K-9 unit, had non-life-threatening injuries. His police dog was taken to a veterinary hospital with minor injuries.
Further information about the crash was not immediately available.
The S.C. Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
