EASLEY—An Easley man is dead after being struck by oncoming traffic on SC Highway 135 early Wednesday morning.
Investigators with the South Carolina Highway Patrol say 23-year old Joseph Brock of Anderson struck the man with his 2010 Mitsubishi at about 1:30 a.m.
Brock was not injured.
“The Mitsubishi was traveling north on SC 135 and (the Easley man) was walking in the roadway and was struck by (the vehicle),” Lance Cpl. Brent Kelly said. “After this collision, two more vehicles that were traveling north on SC 135 struck the pedestrian who was lying in the roadway. Due to the poor visibility of the weather, they were unable to see him.”
Kelly said all vehicles did stop.
The 29-year old pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.
Highway Patrol is still investigating.
