The Oconee County Sheriff's Office said the investigation into a crash involving a South Carolina state trooper and another vehicle revealed that the trooper was not at fault.

The crash happened around 4 p.m. on Highway 24 near Pine Grove Road in Seneca on Thursday, according to sheriff's office spokesman Jimmy Watt.

Watt said an SUV driving behind a car that was preparing to make a left turn swerved into the oncoming lane to avoid rear ending the car and was struck by the trooper's vehicle.

No one was seriously hurt in the crash but the driver of the SUV was charged with multiple offenses, including driving without a license, Watt said. The driver's name and full list of charges have not been released.

Lance Cpl. Bill Rhyne with the SC highway patrol said the trooper involved was a member of the SCHP MAIT team, which investigates serious crashes in the state.
