CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Authorities say they are looking for a vehicle in connection to the death of a Charleston woman. 

The Charleston Police Department announced Friday afternoon that they are investigating  24-year-old Whitney Jordan's death on Thursday on Blake Street as a potential traffic collision.

"At this time, it's believed a vehicle struck the victim causing significant injury," CPD officials said. "The vehicle then fled the scene."

Police are asking for assistance in identifying the vehicle or its driver, however a description was not provided.

Anyone with information can contact Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111 or Consolidated Dispatch at 843-743-7200 and ask for the on-duty CPD Traffic Investigator. 

Charleston County Coroner Dottie Lindsay says Jordan of Charleston died of blunt force trauma Thursday.

Authorities with the coroner say the manner of death is still pending further investigation.

A Charleston police incident report states officers responded at 11 a.m. Thursday to an apartment on Blake Street in reference to assisting fire and EMS with an unresponsive party.

When officers arrived on scene emergency personnel were already treating the victim who was then taken to MUSC.

Social media accounts show Jordan was a chef at The Alley on Columbus Street.

A sign posted to the restaurant’s door Thursday night stated, “The Alley will close tonight at 7 p.m., and we will be closed all day tomorrow (Friday 7/29). We appreciate your patience and understanding. See you Saturday for brunch!”

Social media posts say Jordan was a “naturally talented Chef” and had a “beautiful soul”.

Charleston forensic units were seen outside of the apartment building Friday afternoon.
