GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - The South Carolina Highway Patrol says a pedestrian died early Friday morning after being struck by a dump truck.

The crash happened at approximately 3:25 a.m. on U.S. 17-A near Snooks Court in Georgetown County, Trooper First Class Nick Pye said.

Troopers say the pedestrian was walking south in the roadway and was struck by the truck, which was also traveling south. The driver of the truck was not injured.

Georgetown County Coroner Chase Ridgeway identified the pedestrian as Cecil Wareham of Georgetown. Ridgeway said Wareham was in the roadway when he was struck by a large truck.

“Mr. Wareham was pronounced dead at the scene due to his injuries,” GCSO officials said. “South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating. Please keep the Wareham family in your thoughts and prayers.”
