UPDATE: Pedestrian Struck In Two Different Accidents

According to Highway Patrol a pedestrian was struck in two different accidents within 5 minutes of each other early Saturday morning in Beaufort County.

Troopers say it happened on Voice of America Rd. near Cherry Run Rd. around 6:15 a.m.

According to troopers a person was driving a pickup truck in the first accident and didn't see the pedestrian who appears to have walked in front of the vehicle and was struck.

Then five minutes later another vehicle struck the pedestrian and ran over that persons legs.

Troopers say the pedestrian was 24-year-old Jeremy Brown of Greenville. He was taken to PCMH with injuries and is listed in stable condition as of Saturday night.

William Alligood lives near where the accident happened and knows one of the drivers. He said, "My first assumption was he hit a deer. The second vechicle stopped to see if he could help him, as he got closer he ran over to the road and stopped. He said he had just run over the man's leg and then I saw the man in the road."
