NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WRDW) -- A man has died after being hit by a car in North Augusta on Saturday morning.
Reginald F. Prescott, 41, was walking south in the northbound lane of Ridge Road when he was hit by a car driven by Petronella Payne of Clarks Hill, Ga., according to the Aiken County coroner.
She said she was headed home, and the coroner says weather could have been a factor with such low visibility. The accident happened at around midnight, according to the coroner.
Prescott died from multiple body trauma at the hospital around 2 a.m.
