JAMES ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - A woman has died after her car was hit by a sheriff’s deputy in South Carolina who was responding to a call for help from another officer.

Charleston County Sheriff’s Capt. Roger Antonio said in a news release the wreck happened shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday on a road on James Island.

Antonio says a deputy in an unmarked car was responding to a request to help another deputy in a foot chase when a car turned in front of the officer’s vehicle.

Antonio said the woman died at the scene. The deputy and a state constable with the officer were taken to a hospital with serious injuries.

The names of the victim and the officers have not been released yet.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
