CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Driver says Onslow Co. deputy caused crash in SC

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WWAY) — A South Carolina man takes to social media to vent his frustration with an Onslow County Sheriff’s deputy.

The driver, Chad Walton, began rolling video last night right before he says the deputy cut him off and caused a crash. He later posted the video to YouTube.

Walton came up on the Onslow County Deputy going eastbound on I-526 in North Charleston, SC. Walton says the deputy was holding up traffic by going 50 mph in the fast line, when the speed limit was 60.

To get around the deputy, Walton says he moved in to the right line before pulling back into the fast lane. Still recording video, Walton caught the deputy passing on his right, then cutting back in front. That’s when the video shows the deputy slamming on his brakes, which caused walton to rear-end the cruiser.

“That video doesn’t lie,” Walton told WWAY by phone. “You can see how it happened. You can see the speedometer in the video, where you can see I was going 60 miles an hour.”

After the crash, Walton says the deputy, driving car No. 145 that was marked as a K-9 unit, did not pull over, so Walton called 911. Walton says North Charleston Police responded and cited the deputy for being at fault. The officer was not ticketed.

So far the Onslow County Sheriff’s has not returned calls for comment. North Charleston Police also have not responded to our requests for more information.
