Anderson police officer hurt in wreck


ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) — An Anderson police officer has been hurt after his patrol car flipped over after a wreck.

Police Lt. Tony Tilley says officer Matt Anderson suffered minor injuries in the wreck Wednesday. Tilley says Anderson had turned on his emergency lights and siren as he was headed to a hit and run wreck when his car flipped over.

Anderson is in good condition at AnMed Health Medical Center.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol says a man turned in front of Anderson, who swerved off the road. Patrol Cpl. Billy Rhyne says the driver of the other car has been charged with failure to yield.

Anderson has been with the department for more than a year.
