ANDERSON (AP) — One person has been killed and another injured following a chase involving an Anderson County sheriff’s deputy.
Officials said the chased vehicle crashed around 1 p.m. Tuesday.
Twenty-seven-year-old Bryan Corey Madden of Anderson was killed. A woman in the car was in critical condition in a Greenville hospital.
