MANNING - A 51-year-old Georgetown man who was lying in the southbound lane of U.S. 301, north of Manning, died Saturday night after being struck by a vehicle.

Clarendon County Coroner Bucky Mock identified the victim as Raynell Carraway.

"Carraway's identification card listed him as a resident of Georgetown County," Mock said Monday morning. "Mr. Carraway was living with a relative in the Alcolu area when the accident occurred."

Mock said that Carraway was transported to McLeod Clarendon Hospital where he died from injuries that he sustained in the incident.

"An autopsy will be performed on Carraway on Tuesday at the Medical University of South Carolina," Mock added.

Lance Cpl. Matt Southern of the South Carolina Highway Patrol said the incident happened at 9:19 p.m. Saturday on U.S. 301 near its intersection with June Burn Road.

Southern said that Larry Singleton was driving a 2003 Mazda van on U.S. 301 South toward Manning when his vehicle struck Carraway who was lying illegally in the southbound roadway. The deceased was wearing all dark clothing, Southern added.

The trooper said that Singleton and all three passengers in the van were wearing seatbelts, and no one in the vehicle received injuries in the incident.

Southern said the incident was under investigation by South Carolina Highway Patrol.
