A man wanted for a deadly hit-and-run accident involving a cyclist in the Charleston area is now in custody.
Investigators say they have arrested 32-year-old Jason Frank Marion of Summerville in connection to a deadly crash early Friday morning that killed the cyclist. Charleston Police say Marion is charged with leaving the scene of a collision that resulted in death. Officials say Marion surrendered to authorities Tuesday afternoon and is scheduled for a bond hearing Wednesday.
The coroner’s office says 51-year-old Gerard Nieto of Charleston died at the scene. The accident happened along Savannah Highway near White Oak Drive just before 1:30 a.m. Officers say both Nieto and Marion were traveling south at the time of the incident.
