COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Troopers in South Carolina say the driver that hit and killed a man found on the side of a road in Columbia has contacted them.

Authorities said the driver called the Highway Patrol on Tuesday after seeing reports about the crash and told troopers he called deputies on Monday. He has not been identified, and the incident remains under investigation.

Investigators say a 33-year-old man’s body was found near a hotel by state Highway 555 near Interstate 77 around 8 a.m. Monday. Investigators think he was struck either in the early morning hours Monday or the day before.

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts says the man appears to be homeless and did not release his name because his family has not been notified.
