Pedestrian dies after accident on James Island

JAMES ISLAND, S.C (WCBD)– A pedestrian has died in the hospital from her injuries after being hit by a vehicle on James Island Saturday.

Officials identified the victim as 66-year-old Mildred Bennett Brown of Mount Pleasant.

The accident happened in front of 1847 Folly Road near Battery Island Drive. Officials say the pedestrian was attempting to cross Folly Road when a 2015 Hyundai struck her.

Police say speed does not appear to have been a factor. They say she was not crossing at a crosswalk and there were not many streetlights.

The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office Selective Traffic Enforcement Unit (STEU) and the Charleston County Coroner’s Office are investigating.
