A Grovetown teen died Wednesday evening, a day after being hit by a sport utility vehicle on Hereford Farm Road.
Cory Allan Morin, 17, of Devon Road, was pronounced dead at about 6:30 p.m. at the Medical College of Georgia Hospital, said Columbia County Coroner Vernon Collins.
Morin died of a closed head injury, Collins said.
Morin was on his way to a friend’s house at about 4 p.m. Tuesday. He was standing on the edge of Hereford Farm Road near Lewiston Elementary School and looked away from southbound motorists, Columbia County sheriff’s Sgt. A.J. Lyons said.
Morin then stepped into the road in front of a Ford Escape driven by Brian David Pregrove, 42, of Cannock Street in Grovetown.
Pregrove will not be charged in the accident, sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris said Thursday.
