SC Gov. Haley was a passenger in SUV crash in June, officials say

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, S.C. -

State agents say South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley was a passenger in an SUV that crashed into a concrete pole during a fundraiser in North Carolina two months ago.

State Law Enforcement Division Chief Mark Keel said Haley, the SLED agent driving her and two passengers weren't injured in the June 27 wreck.

A North Carolina Highway Patrol report on the crash said the SLED agent didn't see a pole in the roadway at a resort in Greensboro. N.C. The agent was not charged, but the report blamed his inattention for the wreck.

Keel said Tuesday that SLED didn't think about telling the media about the wreck because it involved only the governor's vehicle and no one was hurt.

Keel says the wreck did $4,300 damage to the state-owned SUV.
