CAMDEN, S.C. (AP) - A Kershaw County sheriff’s deputy has been hurt when a driver hit his patrol car head-on near Camden.

Sheriff Jim Matthews told local media the wreck happened about 4:30 p.m. Saturday.

Matthews said witnesses told deputies they thought the driver of the other vehicle might have had a medical emergency. Matthews said deputies are awaiting a toxicology report.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating. Matthews said state troopers will decide if charges should be filed.

The sheriff said the deputy had a broken hand and some bruises. His name has not been released.

The driver of the other vehicle was taken to Palmetto Health Richland Hospital in Columbia. There was no word on his condition, but the sheriff said he did not think the person’s injuries were serious.
