The Greenville County Sheriff's Office is investigating a crash involving a trooper with the South Carolina Highway Patrol.

On Sunday around 10:20 a.m., troopers were responding to a tip regarding a vehicle matching the description of the car involved in a moped hit-and-run the night prior. The Volkswagen Jetta believed to be involved in the crash was reportedly spotted along Saint Mark Road near Rock Crest Circle.

A trooper involved in the incident reportedly turned around with lights and sirens on and, in the process, collided with a motorcycle. Deputies said a driver and a passenger on the motorcycle suffered minor injuries. Slight damage was reported to the motorcycle.

Both individuals on the motorcycle reportedly declined medical attention.

No troopers were injured in the incident.

The crash remains under investigation by the Greenville County Sheriff's Office.
