PICKENS COUNTY, S.C. (WYFF) – A woman hoarding gas caught on fire following a car accident Thursday night in Pickens County, according to Chief Deputy Chad Brooks with the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office.

The driver of the Pontiac turned left onto Wolf Creek Road and accelerated the vehicle in an attempt to elude law enforcement. The deputy then activated his vehicle’s siren, Brooks said.

According to Brooks, the driver lost control of the vehicle, veered off the roadway, and completely flipped the vehicle.
