ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Anderson County deputies are trying to identify two suspects that led them on a chase to the Georgia state line and damaged a deputy’s patrol car.

The sheriff’s office said a deputy on patrol on Highway 81 saw a black, four-door Dodge Dakota unlawfully pass a line of traffic and run a red light to turn left onto Masters Boulevard. The deputy turned around and began trying to catch up to the SUV, and did so on Martin Road as the Dakota was passing another car on a double yellow line.

The deputy tried to pull the vehicle over, but the driver did not stop.

The chase moved onto US 29 and continued to the Georgia state line, reaching speeds of at least 95 miles per hour.

During the chase, deputies said the two people in the vehicle began throwing items out of the windows, including wrenches, speakers, and other items.

The pursuing deputies were able to avoid most of the litter but a flashlight struck and shattered one deputy’s patrol cruiser.

Several of the items that were thrown from the vehicle were recovered and deputies said the evidence would be processed for fingerprints.

The suspects have not been identified.
