ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) - Police say a man has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident that killed a 73-year-old woman with Alzheimer’s disease.

Multiple media outlets report that 55-year-old Jerry Floyd was arrested Wednesday after an Anderson police officer noticed his silver GMC Terrain matched the type of car involved in the incident and had front end damage. A police spokesman says there was additional evidence at the intersection tying Floyd to the collision.

Mattie Sue Dixon’s body was found around 4 a.m. Authorities say Dixon left her home early Wednesday and was struck and killed between 3:15 a.m. and 4 a.m. Dixon had a history of leaving the apartment she shared with her son, which is about a half-mile from the intersection.
