The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating a deadly hit and run in Anderson County. Troopers say a pedestrian was hit and killed at 3:45 a.m. on Broadway Lake Road. 

'It was a bad sight," says Chopper Lowry, who lives on Broadway Lake Road.

Lowry came home early Friday morning, his wife told him she heard a loud noise around 3:30 a.m. and soon Highway Patrol was investigating a deadly hit and run. 

Anderson County Coroner Don McCown tells us 36-year-old Victor Lance Smith died of blunt force trauma, but he hasn't ruled out that the injuries were from something other than a car.

The Lowrys told Troopers what they saw. They hope it will help solve the case.

"That was a human and is somebody's kid and this family needs answers," Lowry says. 

Highway Patrol sent out a flyer with a suspect vehicle description. They say the car they're looking for is a 2005-2010 model of either a Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger, or Dodge Magnum. They don't know what color the car is. You can see the flyer by clicking here.

Highway Patrol says the vehicle will have noticeable damage between the center front, right front and undercarriage. Troopers ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC Anderson County Deputies are also investigating the death.
