MEGGETT, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office released surveillance footage of a pickup truck they think may be involved in a fatal hit and run in Meggett.

The incident happened Friday at approximately 9:30 p.m. in the 4500 block of Highway 165, according to Capt. Roger Antonio.

The Charleston County Coroner’s Office said 30-year-old Matthew Baer from Meggett died in the incident.

Deputies say vehicle parts were scattered nearby, but no vehicle or driver was on scene.

The truck is possibly a 2005 to 2015 GMC Sierra Quad Cab, may have front-end damage to the hood or bumper and may be missing a front grill.

The truck appears to have blue show lights in the wheel wells, sidestep and undercarriage, Antonio said.
