Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher has identified the individual who died in a vehicle collision following a police pursuit.
The collision occurred in the 4300 block of the 12th Street Extension just before 11 p.m. Monday.
According to Fisher, Mr. Quinton J. Nunn, 26, of Blythewood was pronounced dead at the scene due to injuries sustained in the collision. Mr. Nunn attempted to evade a traffic stop initiated by a Trooper with the South Carolina Highway Patrol, which led to a brief pursuit.
Mr. Nunn lost control of the vehicle that he was driving, crossed the median, left the road, and collided with several trees. Mr. Nunn was not wearing a seat belt when the collision occurred. The incident is under investigation by the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department.
