Anderson, SC (FOX Carolina) - Deputies in Anderson County tells us at least one person has been detained following a chase Monday morning. 

A FOX Carolina photographer initially spotted deputies traveling down Clemson Boulevard with their lights and sirens activated. 

We reached out to Anderson County dispatch who told us a chase was in progress but concluded along Dixon Road. Deputies on scene were searching a vehicle when we arrived. 

The sheriff's office tells us the initial traffic stop was for reckless driving, but deputies discontinued the stop prior to it becoming a pursuit.

Additional deputies in the area located the suspect vehicle and attempted to make another traffic stop. The sheriff's office says this time a pursuit did ensue and ended when the suspect vehicle struck one of the sheriff's office vehicles near Dixon Road.
