On January 1, 2019 the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a vehicle being pursued by the S.C. Highway Patrol. After the S.C. Highway Patrol canceled the pursuit, the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office observed the vehicle on Hwy 76 in Princeton. Deputies attempted to stop the vehicle, however the driver failed to comply by stopping upon deputies activating their blue lights and siren. The driver of the pursued vehicle continued to travel into Greenville County and a short distance later lost control and ran off the right side of the roadway and overturned. The driver was transported to the hospital in Greenville County. This incident is being investigated by the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office.
