 GREENVILLE (AP) - Two people were in custody after a South Carolina deputy was killed and several other people were injured when a traffic stop on Interstate 85 went awry, authorities said.

Greenville County Sheriff's Sgt. Conley Jumper was killed after officers stopped a vehicle on I-85 on Tuesday afternoon (10-20-2020), sheriff's officials said. A struggle occurred after at least one of the occupants fought with officers.

The stopped car began to pull away and collided with an 18-wheeler, authorities said, and a sheriff's car that was arriving to provide assistance then collided with the vehicle that officers had initially stopped.

Jumper, 52, was fatally injured, and two deputies and two civilians were hurt.
