NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The coroner’s office has identified a man who was killed in a hit-and-run on I-26 in North Charleston.

Authorities said 37-year-old Berry Lance Davis from Lumberton, N.C. died in the weekend accident.

It happened on Sunday at 3:30 a.m. on the westbound lanes of I-26 near mile marker 216.

“Mr. Davis was pronounced deceased at the Medical University of South Carolina on September 7, 2020 at 1201 hours from blunt force injuries he sustained from the collision,” Chief Deputy Coroner Bobbi Jo O’Neal said. “The South Carolina Highway Patrol is the investigating agency.”

Troopers said Davis was a passenger on a motorcycle which was struck by a vehicle on the interstate.

According to troopers, a 2020 Chevy 4-door was heading westbound when it struck a 2015 Kawasaki motorcycle which had two people on it.

Investigators say the driver of the Chevy fled the scene on foot. Anyone with information is asked to call Highway Patrol.
