Deputy & Pedestrian Involved in Multi-car Crash
A multi-car crash in the Upstate involves a deputy with the Greenville County Sheriff's Office and a pedestrian. Authorities tell News 13 it happened just after 5:30 Thursday morning on Augusta Road near the intersection of Old Augusta Road.
The South Carolina Highway Patrol has been called in to investigate the incident, which is standard with any deputy involved collision. The Sheriff’s Office Professional Standards Unit is also conducting an internal investigation to determine if there were any policy violations.
At this time both southbound and northbound lanes of Augusta Road are closed from Old Augusta Road at the QT gas station, to Old Augusta Road just above Godivas.
News 13's Evan Donovan will have more on this story later today on News 13.
