FLORENCE, S.C. (WBTW) — Florence police are looking for a dark-colored pickup truck after a deadly hit-and-run early Saturday morning that resulted in the driver of a car involved in a rollover crash being “dragged or carried” several miles across the city.
Police are searching for a 2014-2018 lifted Chevrolet Silverado with a chrome toolbox in the bed, chrome rims and a loud exhaust, according to a news release.
On Monday evening, police released photos of the truck believed to be involved.
Police were called at about 2:50 a.m. to Church Street near June Lane to investigate a report of a single-car rollover crash. When officers arrived, they talked to a passenger in the vehicle, but the driver was not at the scene.
Florence police and fire units searched the area but could not find the driver. About 15 minutes after the initial call, police said officers were called to Ingram and Lawson streets after getting a report about an unresponsive person in the roadway. That person was identified as the driver from the Church Street crash.
The person was identified as Kentrey Levar White-Long, 26, of Florence, according to Florence County Coroner Keith von Lutcken.
Investigators believe White-Long may have been hit after he got out of his car.
Police said investigators are working to determine what route the suspect took from the collision scene to where White-Long was found on Ingram Street.
