CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Police arrested a man early Sunday morning after they say he hit a pedestrian with his truck on upper King Street and then drove off.

According to an incident report, Charleston Police Department officers responded to the corner of King and Spring streets around 2 a.m. after receiving reports of a hit-and-run involving a pedestrian.

Witnesses at the intersection directed police to a 45-year-old man laying on the ground, who was conscious, but bleeding from the head, according to the report.

The man told police he last remembered walking out of Huger's, located just down the street, before waking up in his current state on the ground at the intersection.

A witness at the scene told police she saw the man get hit by a red compact pickup truck that looked like a Chevrolet S-10. The witness told police the driver briefly pulled over at King and Cannon streets before driving off.

The witness described the driver as a black male with short hair.

The vehicle's side mirror, which had broken off during the incident, was taken into evidence.

According to police records, officers arrested 33-year-old Tracy Amos Prioleau around 2:40 a.m. at 144 Bee Street.

He was charged with leaving the scene of an accident causing personal injury and taken to the Charleston County Detention Center.

A judge granted Prioleau a $10,405 bond on Saturday.

The victim suffered a broken ankle and several cuts in the incident. He is expected to recover fully.
