Deputies search for car thieves after crash

Greenville County deputies are searching for suspects who they say stole a Dodge Durango in Lexington County and then crashed the car into a tree in Greenville County on Thursday night.

Lt. Tim Ridgeway with the Greenville County Sheriff's Office said they got a phone call at about 10:30 p.m. about a car crashing into a tree. Deputies arrived at Wrigley Street and Gallon Street to find a blue Dodge Durango.

Ridgeway said it was the same car that was reported stolen out of Lexington County, and the same car deputies tried to pull over for a traffic violation earlier in the day. Residents told authorities that after the crash the passengers jumped out of the car and then fled into the woods.

Ridgeway said K-9 officers were on the scene looking for the suspects.
