VIDEO: Dashcam Captures Deadly S.C. Pursuit

New video of a Jan 21 high speed chase in Horry County, S.C., shows the moments leading up to a deadly crash near Highway 22. Now, authorities are piecing together why the man was evading police in the first place, WMBF TV reports.

The video comes from the South Carolina Highway Patrol's dash cam and shows the trooper attempting to pull over a motorist for running a traffic signal. What should have been a routine traffic stop turned into a high-speed chase.

Suspect Bryan Lamm, 25, fled at speeds of 100 mph. At one point, he is seen slowing down just long enough to let a passenger out of the car. That passenger ran into the woods.

Moments later, the suspect takes off on a narrow dirt road. The pursuing trooper slowed down, but the suspect sped on and was killed in a crash.

The Horry County Sheriff's Office is investigating.

As a law enforcement publication I am absolutely amazed at your use of the phrase "routine traffic stop". There is no such thing, and officers would like to see the media stop using this phrase and so to see it in a police magazine is astonishing to say the least. Every traffic stop is a potentially dangerous situation, just like any other LE call. You would not say a "routine burglary call" would you? So why call a traffic stop "routine"? Officers are ambushed, attacked, assaulted, and worse on traffic stops and they are all potentially very dangerous. There is not a single moment in LE that is "routine" and I would hope to stop hearing this word associated with the job.

You're right Laura. However, after 37 years of service, the term hasn't yet been stopped and I don't think it will stop. People outside of LE use the term as they see LE always making traffic stops. It's a term they will never understand. Be safe and God Bless LE
