A two-vehicle crash in Greenville County at approximately 9:41 a.m. on Wednesday, March 25, involved a motorist pursued by police. A spokesman for the Greenville County sheriff’s office stated that the accident occurred on Whitehorse Road at Old Grove Road.
Trooper in Pursuit Prior to Wreck
The sheriff’s office spokesman told wyff news that the wreck occurred after a South Carolina Highway Patrol trooper chased a 2005 Mercury Marquis. The spokesman went on to say that the trooper concluded his pursuit near Bruce Road, about 1/4 mile from the crash scene. During the course of the preliminary investigation, a controversy arose over whether the trooper’s pursuit concluded before the crash, or whether it continued until the accident occurred.

A 29-year-old male was driving the Mercury Marquis. The Greenville County coroner reported that he died at the scene.
