DILLON COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – A man was found dead on the side of Old Marion Road in Dillon County early Friday morning, officials confirmed.

A driver noticed the body laying alongside the road near Cleveland St. and notified authorities, said Dillon County Coroner Donnie Grimsley.

It does not appear the man was hit by a car, the coroner said, and he does not suspect foul play at this time.

The man was identified as 60-year-old Albert Singleton Jr. of Dillon, better known as "Fast Eddie."

His body has been sent off for an autopsy.
