FLORENCE COUNTY, SC (WBTW) – Three deputy cars belonging to the Florence County Sheriff’s Office were rammed on Thursday afternoon.

Major Michael Nunn says in a press release around 12:39 p.m., a patrol deputy attempted to initiate a traffic stop on North Cashua Street for a moving violation and the driver of the vehicle refused to stop. The vehicle briefly came to a stop in a parking lot, where the passenger exited the car. The vehicle continued to flee from deputies. The pursuit continued into the Black Creek and TV Road area, where it ended after the suspect vehicle crashed and overturned multiple times. The suspect driver was ejected from the vehicle and transported to a hospital. No information on their condition is available.
