WALTERBORO, S.C. (WCBD) – A bicyclist was killed after being struck by a vehicle Wednesday evening, according to troopers with the South Carolina Highway Patrol.

Master Sgt. Gary Miller said the car versus bicycle crash happened around 8:15 p.m. on Peurifoy Road near Henry Street – which is about a mile south of Walterboro.

According to Colleton County Fire Rescue, three people – a woman, man, and small child – were riding separate bikes on a dark rural section of Peurifoy Road around 8:00 p.m.

Fire rescue officials said the “road was dark and was not equipped with street lights” and that the “bicycles also were not equipped with lighting.”

A 2016 Chevrolet Impala traveling on Peurifoy Road rounded a curve and collided with the woman, who was thrown into a ditch and suffered multiple traumatic injuries.

Trooper Miller said the bicyclist died, but the driver of the Chevrolet – the only occupant – was not injured. He said no charges have been filed. The other two bicyclists were not injured.

The crash is under investigation by the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
