FLORENCE, S.C. (WMBF) - The Florence Police Department released new surveillance pictures of the vehicle they believe was involved in a deadly hit-and-run over the weekend.

The Florence Police Department said officers were called to a crash in the area of Church Street and June Lane at around 2:50 a.m. Saturday. Police said the crash involved a single vehicle that rolled over.

Officers spoke to a passenger in that vehicle, but the driver was not found at the scene. Around 15 minutes later, police responded to the area of Ingram Street and Lawson Street after reports of an unresponsive person on the road. That’s where officers found the body of 26-year-old Kentrey White-Long.

Investigators believe the White-Long was hit on Church Street after the first crash and was then “dragged or carried” where they were eventually found.

Florence police believe he was hit by a dark lifted 2014 to 2018 Chevrolet Silverado with a chrome toolbox in the bed, chrome aftermarket rims and a loud exhaust. They say the truck appears to have damage to the front passenger-side headlight area.
