DILLON, S.C. (AP) - A Charleston woman is charged in the weekend hit-and-run death of a Dillon man.

Dillon County Coroner Donnie Grimsley tells local news outlets that 56-year-old Calvin Fletcher was struck and killed on state Highway 9 in Dillon about 3:30 a.m. Saturday.

Authorities say the man was struck when a pickup truck was trying to pass a second vehicle and hit the victim and sped off.

Authorities say a short time later 35-year-old Shawna Smiling of Charleston was arrested and charged with felony driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident.

She’s in the Dillion County jail. It was not immediately known if she had an attorney.
