SC man warned about night riding in road killed

Aug 5, 2010 6:06:00 AM - thestate.com
Officials say a South Carolina man who had been warned by a sheriff's deputy about riding a bicycle in the middle of a road at night has died after he was hit by a car.

The Beaufort Gazette reported a sheriff's deputy had stopped 21-year-old Detron Jenkins late Tuesday as he peddled down a road on a bike with no lights or reflectors, while wearing all-black clothes.

A sheriff's report says Jenkins told the deputy he was riding to his mother's house about 8 miles away.

Highway Patrol Cpl. Paul Brouthers says Jenkins was hit about 1:15 a.m. Wednesday by a car driven by a 21-year-old Beaufort woman.

Brouthers says the woman will not be charged.
