Woman charged in fatal Hilton Head hit-and-run

Posted: Updated:

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a 32-year-old woman has been arrested after she hit and killed a man walking on a Hilton Head Island road and drove away.

Troopers said they found a damaged SUV in Bluffton linked to the Friday night death of 28-year-old Joshua Hebenstreit and traced it back to Katie Byam.

Byam is charged with leaving the scene of an accident involving death and driving with a suspended license.

Byam remains at the Beaufort County jail, and it wasn't known if she had a lawyer.
