An Easley man - charged with leaving the scene of a deadly accident in Pickens County - is scheduled to go on trial next week.

Rufus Raiden III is charged with hit and run, duties involved in accident with death by the 13th Circuit Solicitor's Office. He is also charged with driving under suspension.

Raiden was driving a pickup truck on Pelzer Highway December 10, 2011 when he was involved in a head-on accident. The crash resulted in the death of Jeremy Ryan Crain, 24, who died from his injuries later at Greenville Memorial Hospital.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol says Raiden didn't remain at the scene. 

He was arrested two days later in Columbia. Police say they received a tip Raiden was attempting to board a bus in the city when they found him.

Raiden is scheduled to go on trial in Pickens County on January 27.
