    I don't think any state gives blanket immunity from all traffic laws when running lights/siren, let alone immunity from crashes. This will need to play out...

    NYPDALT, That is NOT the case in many if not most States! The wording of the laws are often convoluted. In SC it only states that LE vehicles may exceed the posted speed limit and not subject to local and state traffic laws. You are STILL responsible if while ignoring those laws you have an accident! Guys, be careful as you do no good unless you get there and it isn't worth losing your life over in a TC.

    It's sad that someone was killed during the accident. But what gets me is the Head Line. "Driver Killed After Colliding With Sheriff's Deputy". It almost sounds like the Deputy up and shot the driver of the other care. I hope the Deputy comes out of this ok and in good health.
