LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

A deputy is OK following a single-vehicle crash Monday night during a pursuit, a spokesperson with the Lexington County Sheriff's Department confirmed. 

The deputy attempted to stop a car, described as a brown early-2000s Chevrolet Impala with a black rear bumper, for an equipment violation just before midnight in the 600 block of Edmund Highway. 

The suspect did not slow down for the deputy after he turned on his blue lights. The pursuit eventually ended just past the intersection of Old Orangeburg and Pleasant View roads. 

After the collision, the deputy was able to walk away from his vehicle. He was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
