A Beech Island man giving a lift to a stranded motorist was killed in a Saturday morning hit-and-run.
Robert Brooks, 48, was giving a ride to Kathrine Bentley, of Windsor, who had run out of gas, when his scooter was struck from behind by a late-model Kia Sportage, a police report said.
Bentley was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center by ambulance. Brooks died at the hospital around 2:05 p.m. Sunday, Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton said.
The highway patrol said the driver of the Kia, Sandra Huntington, 39, was arrested at her Beech Island home around 2:45 p.m. Saturday and charged with two counts of leaving the scene.
