Our deputies will be patrolling these areas to make sure the roads are safe this weekend. As always, they'll be enforcing the speed limit, making sure you're wearing your seat belt and aren't driving under the influence.

You still have a week to finalize your #Halloween costume, so slow down and put the phone away!

Lexington County Sheriff's Department

Over the weekend, a trailer belonging to the Boy Scouts of America Troop 60 out of Gilbert was stolen. This morning, our deputies followed up on a call and found the trailer abandoned off Liberty Hill Road. We’re still working on determining what was taken, but some of the items are still inside. The outside was painted over to attempt to disguise it.

Thank you to community for sending in tips and sightings of the trailer over the last few days, this is what #LexingtonCounty is about: helping each other. We’re happy the troop will soon have their things back!

Pursuit of stolen car ends in fatal crash

LEXINGTON, S.C. – A pursuit in southern Lexington County ended in a fatal crash Monday morning at the entrance to the South Carolina State Farmers Market.

A Lexington County deputy attempted to stop a car in the 600 block of Meadowfield Drive after noting it matched the description of a car reported stolen to the South Congaree Police Department Monday morning. The driver of the stolen car initiated the pursuit when he failed to stop for the deputy’s blue lights and siren.

The pursuit traveled on Meadowfield Road, Woodtrail Drive and Highway 321. The pursuit ended on Charleston Highway at the South Carolina State Farmers Market when the stolen car collided with a commercial delivery vehicle.

The driver of the stolen car and a passenger died in the collision. The commercial delivery vehicle’s driver was injured, but is expected to recover.

The stolen car’s driver had a suspended driver’s license and was wanted by the South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services.

South Carolina state troopers are investigating the collision, which is standard procedure in crashes that occur during a police pursuit.
