DILLON, SC (WBTW) – The South Carolina Highway Patrol is asking for help after a deadly hit-and-run crash Monday evening.

Tony Alexander Smith, 26, of Dillon, died after being hit by two vehicles on Highway 301 South, not far from Woodle Drive. It happened around 7:13 pm. Dillon County Coroner Donnie Grimsley says an autopsy will be done on Tuesday.  

According to the Highway Patrol, the crash involved an unknown vehicle, a Kia, and a pedestrian.
