Vehicle hits & kills Hartsville man crossing the street

HARTSVILLE, SC (WBTW) – A person died after being hit by a vehicle in the Pine Ridge area of Darlington County Wednesday morning.

Cpl. Sonny Collins said a 2011 Nissan was traveling south on S.C. Hwy. 151 (Bobo Newsom Hwy.) when it hit a person who was crossing the road around 6:30 a.m.

The Highway Patrol’s online traffic reporting system reported the collision happened just north of W. Old Camden Rd., specifically between the Markette convenience store and West Propane. WBTW’s traffic system showed traffic congestion at that intersection northwest of Hartsville for more than an hour Wednesday morning.

Darlington County Coroner Todd Hardee identified the victim as 57-year-old Duane Allen Campbell of Pine Ridge.   Campbell was pronounced dead at the scene.

Collins said no charges would be filed against the driver of the Nissan. The coroner’s office continues to investigate.
