North Augusta man killed
A North Augusta man was killed early Saturday after he was struck by a car on Ridge Road.
According to Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton, Reginald F. Prescott, 41, was walking south in the northbound lane around midnight when he was struck by a 2003 Ford driven by Petronella Payne of Clarks Hill, Ga., who was driving home from work.
Prescott was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 2:17 a.m. from multiple body trauma.
Carlton said in a news release that weather and low visibility appear to have been a factor in the accident.
