The South Carolina Highway Patrol says a sheriff's deputy suffered only minor injuries in a wreck along Interstate 85.

News outlets reported the wreck happened around 12:15 p.m. Monday between Townville and Fair Play not far from the South Carolina-Georgia state line.

Troopers say an Anderson County Sheriff's Office vehicle was involved in a three-vehicle wreck in the southbound lanes of the highway.

The Highway Patrol says the deputy was trying to turn left at a crossover when the patrol car was hit by a pickup truck towing a trailer. The pickup then hit another car and ran off the road and jack-knifed.

Troopers say no one was hurt.

A separate wreck in the northbound lanes near Fair Play also caused traffic backups for a while Monday afternoon.
