CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Charleston Police say they now know the identity of a man they said may be a witness to a hit-and-run crash that injured two people Friday.

Police released surveillance photos of the man, who they say has “a distinctive tattoo” on his left arm, and asked for the public’s help to identify him.

Police believe the man was inside the vehicle involved in the collision that happened at approximately 1:55 a.m. Friday at the intersection of Meeting and Columbus Streets.

Police said there were no warrants for this man and that investigators only wanted to question him about the incident.

The crash sent two women to the hospital with serious injuries.

Erik Gustav Kirby, 31, of Charleston, was arrested early Sunday morning in connection with the incident.

Kirby was being held in the Al Cannon Center.

Police said they were still working to find the vehicle involved.
