A Gaffney man is dead after he was struck by a hit-and-run vehicle Tuesday night on Highway 29.

Cherokee County Coroner identified the victim as 32-year-old Terry John Roland. 

“Roland was walking south on U.S. Highway 29 at 9:50 p.m. when he was struck near the intersection of Leigh Road by a vehicle headed north,” Fowler said. “Roland was pronounced dead at the scene.” 

Shortly after the fatal collision, S.C. Highway Patrol troopers found an abandoned vehicle believed to have been involved in the hit-and-run in the parking lot of a nearby convenience store, according to Fowler. 

An autopsy has been scheduled to assist with the coroner’s investigation of the incident.
