A man walking on US 1/Augusta Highway was struck by two vehicles and killed Thursday night, and the S.C. Highway Patrol is looking for the owner of one of the vehicles that left the scene.
The unidentified pedestrian was walking in the middle of the highway about 2 miles west of West Columbia around 9:32 p.m. when he was hit by a southbound Chevrolet car, S.C. Highway Patrol trooper Billy Elder said.
The car was driven by John C. Bonette, 39, of Columbia. Bonette was not injured.
After the first collision, a second, light-in-color vehicle struck the pedestrian and left the scene, Elder said.
The S.C. Highway Patrol is looking for information about the second vehicle. Anyone with knowledge of the collision is asked to call (800) 768-1501.
