Deputy fatally injured in vehicle accident while responding to a call

Saluda County Sheriff’s Office lost one of their decorated deputies early this morning in a vehicle accident while responding to a serious call.

Other deputies were in a vehicle pursuit with an unknown suspect that carried them just outside of the Saluda County line into Edgefield County.

The pursuit ended and the suspect fled from the vehicle with a rifle and a child.  The minor child was later released by the suspect and taken to safety by deputies.

The supervisor on scene requested bloodhound support to track the suspect. Saluda County deputy Corporal Dale Hallman responded to the request with lights and sirens activated.  Hallman was involved in a single vehicle traffic collision.  Law enforcement, EMS and fire personnel responded and Hallman was transported to Self Regional Healthcare where he later died from injuries sustained in the collision.

Corporal Hallman will be remembered as a devoted law enforcement officer with five years of service at the Saluda County Sheriff’s Office.  In addition, he served the citizens of Saluda County as a Lieutenant in the County Fire Service.  In 2016, Hallman was awarded the Medal of Valor for his outstanding service to Saluda County.  Hallman leaves behind a wife, unborn child and two beloved stepsons. In addition, he is survived by his mother, father and sister who are all natives of Saluda County. 

“I would like to ask everyone to please lift up the Hallman family, along with the Saluda County Sheriff’s Office with your prayers at this time”, Saluda County Sheriff John C. Perry.
