 — Police say a 57-year-old pedestrian hit by a car at the intersection of Heckle Boulevard and McCullough Street in Rock Hill late Wednesday night has died.

Barbara Sibley, of 1438 Archive St. in Rock Hill, was taken to Piedmont Medical Center where she was pronounced dead around 10:25 p.m., said York County Coroner Sabrina Gast.

Sibley died from injuries suffered during the accident, Gast said.

Rock Hill police officers and the police department’s accident reconstruction team were on the scene late Wednesday, said Lt. Brad Redfearn with the Rock Hill Police Department.

Preliminary findings show that Sibley may have been intoxicated when she walked from McCullough Street onto Heckle Boulevard and failed to yield for a 2009 Chevrolet Impala that had the right of way, Redfearn said.

She walked in front of the car and was hit, he said.

The driver told police that he was traveling on Heckle Boulevard at 40- 45 mph when he saw Sibley step into the road from the sidewalk, according to a Rock Hill police report. The driver said Sibley back up as if she was going to yield the right of way to the car but, at the last minute, she walked in front of the vehicle.

Another driver, who said he was traveling behind the driver of the Chevrolet Impala, said he saw Sibley enter the sidewalk.

Detectives spoke with a neighbor, who said that at least three minutes before he learned of the accident, he let Sibley use his bathroom while she was walking home, the report states. That same neighbor told police he thought Sibley was intoxicated at the time.

Members of the police department's accident reconstruction team determined that Sibley was crossing the street to return to her Archive Street home, the report states.

Redfearn said the area between McCullough Street and Heckle Boulevard doesn't have a crosswalk.

As of now, police do not plan to file charges against the driver, which stopped after the crash, he said.

The driver's name wasn't immediately available.

Check back later for more details.

Around 4 p.m., the 44-year-old woman was traveling west in her 1999 Honda on State Route 63 when she ran off the side of the road, slid into an embankment and struck a tree.

She was wearing a seat belt at the time, Jones said.

Serious Wreck again

 

 — One person is dead after an early Tuesday morning collision on S.C. 49 near Clover.

Four people traveling in a 1996 Infiniti were ejected from the vehicle when it swerved onto the other side of the road, struck a tree and overturned, said Lance Cpl. Judd Jones with the Highway Patrol.

Officials responded to the intersection of S.C. 49 and Clegg Farm Drive, just outside of Clover, to find the Infinity had flipped over, said Jones.

A preliminary investigation shows that the driver, James Rose, 19, of York, was traveling north on S.C. 49 when he swerved onto the other side of the road and struck a tree. The car then overturned and passengers were thrown out.

Piedmont EMS, the Bethel Volunteer Fire Department and Clover Rescue Squad all responded to the incident around 1:38 a.m., said Ralph Merchant, operations manager for York County public safety and communications.

Paramedics took Rose, 19, and another passenger, Kristen Wall, 18 of Clover to Piedmont Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, Jones said. Dustin Campbell, 16, of York, and the other passenger, 18, were airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center with serious injuries.

The unnamed passenger later died at the hospital, Jones said. That person's name was not immediately available.

None of the victims were wearing seat belts.

Dog Attack

 

York man bit by dog while jogging

 — A York man jogging near his home was chased and then bitten by a small black and tan dog Monday morning.

The man, 27, said he was running on Shauna Road around 11:30 a.m. when two neighborhood dogs began to chase him. One bit him on his right calf, causing it to bleed and swell to the size of "a half dollar," according to a York County Sheriff's report.

Deputies and animal control spoke with the dogs' caretaker, a 22-year-old woman, who said the dogs belong to her father-in-law in Fort Mill. She called her father-in-law and told him about the incident. She also told authorities that one of the dogs bit her toddler last week. The child only suffered minor injuries, the woman said, so she didn't report the incident.

The woman's father-in-law consented to the dogs being released to animal control and euthanized. Officials were unable to locate shot records for the dogs, although the owner said the dogs were up-to-date on their vaccinations, the report states.

The victim didn't want the owner to be charged but he did request information for having his medical bills paid.

The report did not specify the breed or type of dogs involved in the incident.

Serious Wreck

 

 — A military dump truck carrying loads of gravel on Highway 21 in Chester County flipped over, struck a tree and spilled fuel and debris into the roadway Friday afternoon.

Around 2:50 p.m., Richburg, Lando, Fort Lawn, Lando and Chester County emergency response crews flocked to the area of Highway 21 and S.C. Highway 223 toward Fort Lawn when they saw the truck on its side and its passengers entrapped, said Capt. Darryl Murray with the Fort Lawn Volunteer Fire Department.

Hard rainfall prevented the woman operating the vehicle from seeing the road clearly, Murray said, and she lost control of the truck before the crash. Neither person suffered life-threatening injuries but the man's hand was trapped between a door at one point and the woman complained of neck and back pain.

Diesel spilled into the road, prompting officials to call in a hazmat team, said Eddie Murphy, director of Chester County Emergency Management.

Both passengers were rushed to a nearby hospital. The highway was blocked for over an hour, Murray said, forcing drivers traveling southbound to Fort Lawn to find detours.

Hit and Run Accident resulting in Death

 

 

 — A York man was found dead lying in the middle of a residential street after a hit-and-run accident Saturday, York Police Chief Andy Robinson said in a release.

William Hayes, 50, of New Street died sometime Saturday morning after a vehicle apparently hit him and sped off, leaving him to die not far from his home.

Authorities discovered Hayes’ body after 4:48 a.m. when they received a 911 call, reporting a body lying in the road on New Street between Hill and Congress streets. EMS responded and pronounced Hayes dead.

York County's forensics unit and coroner’s office also responded with forensics investigators collecting evidence left at the scene by a vehicle that struck Hayes.

York Police Chief Andy Robinson said the incident is under investigation and police are asking for anyone with leads to call police or give an anonymous tip.

On Saturday neighbors and family grieved the loss of a friend and good man known for his cheer, helping others, and working hard.

Several gathered at the residence of Denise Hayes, William’s sister, on California Street, just a short walk through the woods to New Street.

Around 3 a.m. Hayes left her residence, and likely cut through the woods between California and New streets, a popular path he often used, Denise said. “He had a pocket full of peaches” he was eating, she said.

They recalled many fond memories of Hayes, such as the way he loved to dance.

“He didn’t care if he danced with anybody, or if he danced by himself,” said Joyce Thompson, whose husband is related to Hayes.

Hayes’ sister Rolinda Hayes said the last time she saw Hayes they had eaten breakfast together. Later he came by and asked about her lawnmower which she couldn’t get to crank.

Before he left she remembers him saying, “I might put my shoes on and jog a little bit.”

A good man

Hayes worked for McNeely Brothers Painting in York for ten or fifteen years at least, said Steve McNeely, who owns the business.

“He was a good worker. He’s going to be missed. It’s sad his life ended the way it did,” he said.

McNeely said Hayes spent a lot of time working for him and got to know his family, and his grandchildren came to know Hayes affectionately as “Willy Wonka.”

“Our family is going to miss him,” McNeely said., who

Darvin and Susie Osborne, who have been Hayes’ neighbors for many years, said he was a real good friend who helped around their home and even insisted on fixing his lawnmower for free.

The Osbornes pointed out Saturday where Hayes was hit, not far from where the path from California Street intersects with New Street and not far from where a streetlamp illuminates the street at night, they said.

They said cars tend to speed down the narrow street. That’s a problem especially when youth are playing basketball at the courts across the street from Hayes’ house, the Osbornes said.

Seeking closure

Family and neighbors were struggling to understand how the incident happened. They were also shocked at how anyone could have hit Hayes and left him.

People always stop when they hit dogs or deer or even possums, they said. With lights on both sides of where he was found, they couldn’t understand how anyone didn’t see him.

Whoever hit him has “no compassion or conscience,” Thompson said.

“You wouldn’t do a dog like that,” Rolinda Hayes said.

Hayes’ niece Monica Hayes shares her uncle’s birthday. They always celebrated together, but the day will be different from now on, she said.

“I won’t get to hear that joking around and telling me I’m pretty. I won’t get to hear that,” she said, adding she wants whoever is responsible to come forward.

“Maybe it was an accident, but just come forward,” she said.

“Everybody wants closure,” Thompson said. “Come forward and admit what you’ve done.”

Police ask anyone with information about this incident to contact the York Police Department at 803-684-4141, Crime Stoppers at 1-877-409-4321, or www.tipsubmit.com to leave an anonymous tip.

Dog Attack

 

 — An 8-year-old York boy was attacked by a dog on Friday.

Police responded to 709 Blackburn Street at 5:15 p.m. and found the boy with several bite wounds and scratches on his arms, chest and back, as well as cuts to his leg, said York Police Chief Andy Robinson.

EMS transported him to Piedmont Medical Center, where he received several stitches and staples to treat his injuries. Animal control took custody of the dog, a Chow Chow.

The dog was on a leash in its owner's yard when the attacked occurred, Robinson said.

The boy, a neighbor to the dog's owner, was known to play with the dog regularly, he said.

Police are unsure why the dog became "vicious" and attacked the boy.

A woman inside a nearby laundry mat across the street told police she saw the dog pounce on the boy and heard him scream, according to a York police report. She began throwing rocks at the dog. A neighbor across the road struck the dog with a bat to get it off the boy.

Officers checked on the boy on Sunday, Robinson said, and he seemed to be doing well. He will have to go to the hospital for a follow-up this week.

The dog is scheduled to be euthanized today, Robinson said.

No charges have been filed.

Late last month, 11-year-old Kenny Allen was mauled by a 2-year-old pit bull when he went to his neighbor's house to borrow a blender. The dog ripped off an entire portion of his scalp.

Kenny now faces months of skin reconstructive surgery to graft skin back to scalp.

Injury on the Job

 

A construction worker clearing trees for an upcoming road-widening project on Albright Road was injured after a fallen tree broke his legs Tuesday.

The incident occurred across the street from Rock Hill Fire Station No. 1 around 4:30 p.m.

The injured worker, 45, received immediate care from fire crews and was airlifted to Carolinas Medical Center, said Rock Hill Fire Department Battalion Chief Steve Rogers.

The worker was part of a crew tasked with clearing trees from the road before the road could be widened, Rogers said.

Officials aren’t sure if one of the trees he was moving with heavy machinery fell on him or if a log rolled across his legs, he said.

Rogers said crews will likely work today on figuring out exactly what happened.

He would not release the man’s name, citing patient privacy laws.
