A man lost his life while walking on a rural road in Lexington County when a car hit him. The fatal accident occurred on Thursday night, the coroner informed.

Sometime before 10 p.m., a man was hit with a car near the intersection of Boiling Springs Road and Bethany Church Road in Lexington County.

The pedestrian, fifty-two-year-old Willie Lee Simmons of Lexington, was pronounced dead at the scene.

For now, it is not known if the man was a pedestrian. The driver that hit him stopped immediately to help, but it was too late.

South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating this deadly crash.

Car accidents are never easy, and sometimes the recovery can be quite long. But, you can seek compensation for your damages and injuries (medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering). This is why you need to hire a car accident attorney who will help you in the process of filing a lawsuit and getting your compensation.

South Carolina has limited statute limitations when it comes to auto accident claims. This is why it is crucial to act fast and file your compensation claim before the deadline is over. Once the deadline passes, you will not have the right to submit the compensation.

South Carolina gives accident victims three years (from the date of the accident) to file a lawsuit for their physical injuries or property damages.
