ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina)- The Anderson County Coroner’s Office says a male victim has died after being struck by a pickup truck along Civic Center Boulevard Saturday evening.
We were first alerted to the scene just before 7 p.m. and began reaching out to officials for more details. Coroner Greg Shore confirmed the office was responding, and just after 9 p.m. provided more information to FOX Carolina.
