Deputy Byron Cannon was killed in an automobile accident on I-20 at approximately 1615 hours.

Deputy Cannon and another deputy were both following a dump truck whose driver was suspected of being involved in an earlier assault. As they approached US 378, Deputy Cannon's patrol car, for unknown reasons, crossed the interstate's median, struck an SUV head-on, and was then struck by a passenger car. The patrol car burst into flames after the second collision.

Deputy Cannon had served with the Richland County Sheriff's Department for 18 months, and had previously served with the South Carolina Department of Probation and Parole for 1 year. He is survived by his fiance, brother, and his mother.
