Authorities are searching for a man involved in a fatal car crash in Aiken County on Tuesday.

Jimmy Sikes, 27, of the 100 block of Teresa Ave., North Augusta, left the scene of a head-on collision on Belvedere-Clearwater Road, according to Lance Cpl. Judd Jones of the South Carolina Highway Patrol. Sikes was driving west in the eastbound lane when he hit a 2012 Ford driven by Barry Williams, 49, of Warrenville.

Williams was traveling east and attempted to swerve to avoid hitting Sikes, who was driving a 1996 Jeep Cherokee. A passenger in the Ford, whose identity has not been released, died of injuries Wednesday, Jones said.

Williams and another passenger, Lisa Williamson, 29, of New Ellenton, were taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital with minor injuries. Two passengers in the Jeep were also taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital with minor injuries: Jamichael Freeman, 26, of Belvedere, and Anasia Dukes, 24, of Warrenville.

Sikes was not injured in the collision. He is described as a white male, 5-feet 8-inches and weighing 165 pounds.

Anyone with information can call (800) 768-1507 or (888) 274-6372.

What kind of reporting is
Unpublished

What kind of reporting is this? How do they know it was Sikes? Did he leave the car at the scene and the car is registered to him? Was he identified by someone? If so, by whom? Just seems like half-baked reporting ...

grinder 48---Couldn't we

grinder 48---Couldn't we assume that one or both of the passengers in the Jeep identified the driver. I'll bet they knew who they were riding with.
