WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

A Charleston police officer responding to an armed robbery and another motorist were involved in a wreck in West Ashley on Friday, authorities say.

South Carolina Highway Patrol officials said the wreck happened around 1:15 p.m., at the intersection of Sam Rittenberg Boulevard and Charlestowne Drive.

Troopers said the Charleston Police Department officer was driving an unmarked car west on Charlestowne Drive when he turned left onto Sam Rittenberg Boulevard and crashed into a Honda CRV in the far left lane of Sam Rittenberg Boulevard.

Troopers said the officer had his lights and siren going, but contributed to the accident nonetheless.  Charleston police spokesman Charles Francis said the officer was responding to an armed robbery at a liquor store down the road when the incident happened.

He will remain on patrol, Francis said.

Both the officer and the woman driving the CRV were taken to Roper Hospital in downtown Charleston.
