A high-speed chase with Richland Deputies ended when a stolen vehicle crashed on Sunset Boulevard (U.S. 378) on Wednesday.
A team of deputies watching a black Honda at Broad River Road and Bush River Road spotted possible drug transactions, sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Curtis Wilson said. When they tried to do a traffic stop, the vehicle fled at a high rate of speed.
The incident happened at about 2:35 p.m. and the chase went all the way to West Columbia.
It ended when the Honda crashed into another vehicle near Lexington Medical Center, Wilson said. Deputies detained the three men in the Honda, and responders took one person from the other vehicle to the hospital for observation.
The Columbia Police Department also responded, because the Honda turned out to have been stolen from somewhere in Columbia, Wilson said.
