A 36-year-old Pinewood man was found dead on Camp Mac Boykin Road Saturday morning after reportedly being run over by a vehicle that fled the scene.

James Antonio Gooden died as a result of a pedestrian-versus-vehicle accident in the Rimini area of Sumter County in which the vehicle fled, according to Sumter County Coroner Robbie Baker.

His body was found before 9 a.m. Saturday by hunters, and Baker pronounced him dead about 8:50 a.m., according to Adrienne Sarvis, public information officer for the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office.

His family has been notified, and an autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday at MUSC in Charleston, according to Baker.

The sheriff’s office and South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating the incident.
