LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

Authorities are still looking for three people after an 18-mile chase on Interstate 26 Wednesday afternoon. A spokesperson for the Richland County Sheriff's Department on Thursday reported to WIS in error that an arrest had been made.

Investigators are following up on leads in an effort to identify who was driving an SUV that fled deputies after an attempted traffic stop near the intersection of Broad River Road and Kennerly Road in Northwest Richland County.

The resulting pursuit did not end until the SUV went off the roadway near mile marker 119 on I-26, which is east of the intersection with I-77 in Lexington County.

Three people bailed out of the vehicle and ran, deputies said.

Deputies from Richland and Lexington counties searched the area near the crash scene for the suspects.

If you know anything about the two people who are still on the run, you are urged to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
