Coroner identifies suspect who died in a vehicle pursuit

Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) On Sunday, Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher identified the person who died in a vehicle collision following a police pursuit near Irmo. The collision occurred Friday night at approximately 10:50 p.m.

According to Fisher, Mr. Daniel Scott Bunch, 30, of Columbia was pronounced dead at the scene due to injuries sustained when his vehicle collided with a tree near the intersection of St. Andrews and Piney Grove Roads. Bunch had initiated a pursuit with Lexington County deputies when he deliberately evaded a joint public safety checkpoint comprised of deputies and troopers from the South Carolina Highway Patrol in the Fernandina Road area. Bunch, who was traveling at a high rate of speed, left the roadway, traveled down an embankment, and collided with a tree.

In accordance with the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department policy, the South Carolina Department of Public Safety is investigating the incident.
