GREENVILLE, S.C. — A dash cam video shows a Highway Patrol trooper pursued a Lexus SUV in Greenville County at speeds that reached 85 mph just after midnight in June before the SUV veered onto a railroad bridge, crashed through a railing and fell onto railroad tracks below.

“We’re traveling 85 miles an hour,” the trooper told dispatchers. The video then shows the Lexus veering left and crashing through a wooden guard rail. On the video, the vehicle disappears from view.

The trooper immediately calls for help and can be seen, with a flashlight, running to the bridge’s edge and peering down toward the railroad tracks. Authorities identified the driver as Josiah Terry, 22, of Easley. The SUV’s driver was killed and two passengers were injured.
