BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

A driver who died from injuries in a fiery crash with Berkeley County deputies has been identified. 

Roger Little, 70, of Ladson, was killed in the accident. 

The South Carolina Highway Patrol said Little died on Wednesday from injuries he sustained this past weekend. 

According to Highway Patrol, Little was in a Cadillac that failed to yield the right of way on College Park Road when they were turning which caused a Berkeley County Sheriff's Office SUV to strike the Cadillac.

Highway Patrol officials say two Berkeley County deputies in the SUV were wearing seat belts and were transported to Trident Hospital. 

Little of the Cadillac was also wearing a seat belt. 

The crash happened at approximately 7:39 p.m. Sunday on College Park Road near the intersection of Miami Street, according to Berkeley County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Mike Cochran.

As deputies approached the intersection in their Ford Interceptor, a Cadillac sedan turned into the path of the deputy's vehicle, he said.

The driver of the deputy vehicle was able to get out the vehicle with the help of a bystander, but the passenger, a fellow Berkeley County deputy was injured and unable to get out of the vehicle on his own, Cochran said. An off-duty reserve deputy helped the injured deputy out of the vehicle before it became fully engulfed in flames, Cochran said.
