Fatal accident involving state trooper under investigation

The Spartanburg County Sheriffs Office is investigating a deadly accident that happened last night when a man crossing Asheville highway was struck by a state trooper. Tony Ivey with the sheriff’s office says the re-construction teams from Spartanburg and Greenville counties are working on the case.
“The investigations are very complex and so they are hoping to have their report completed sometime next week,” said Ivey.
Witnesses said the man had just left an auto parts store and was crossing the highway when he was struck. The names of the victim and the trooper have not been released. The trooper was not hurt.
