Posted: Updated:

A suspect is in the hospital after a police chase in Effingham County. 

It happened Wednesday around 2 a.m. in Clyo, ending with a crash on Reedsville Road.

Deputies say they tried to stop the suspect after he ran from them when they responded to a suicide call. According to deputies, the 44-year-old male led them on a chase for a few miles down Reedsville Rd. before slamming into one of the police cruisers. 

"He was going to get away at all cost. He tried to ram several cars. As we said, he did end up ramming a sheriff's deputy. Thankfully that deputy is OK and this individual is not seriously hurt," said David Ehsanipoor, Effingham County Sheriff's Department.

The suspect was taken to a hospital and will be taken into custody as soon as he is released.
