A second man has been arrested in connection with a hit-and-run crash that left one dead and another injured in Columbia.
Xavier Ivy Hall, 36, turned himself into Columbia Police officers on Tuesday on charges of hit and run involving death, failure to provide information and render aid, and driving vehicle too fast for conditions, according to an agency press release. He is being held at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center without bond.
Hall is accused of driving a GMC Yukon that struck a moped with two passengers in the 3400 block of Two Notch Road on Thursday. The two passengers were thrown from the moped in the crash.
While on the ground, a second vehicle, a silver-colored Oldsmobile ran over one of the passengers, later identified as 58-year-old Edwina Walker, of Columbia, by Richland County Coroner Gary Watts. The second passenger, a 53-year-old man who has not been identified by authorities, was not seriously injured in the crash.
The man accused of driving the Oldsmobile – William Washington, 72 – was arrested on Friday on charges of felony hit and run, and failure to render aid and provide information, according to investigators.
