ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) – A woman who authorities say stopped to help an injured deer on a South Carolina road has been struck and killed by a vehicle.
News outlets report 39-year-old Andrea Owens was with her husband in Anderson County early Sunday when they stopped their car to help the deer that had been hit and hurt.
A deputy coroner says another vehicle struck Owens while she rendered aid to the animal. Owens was taken to a hospital where she died in surgery.
No charges have been filed against the driver who hit Owens. The coroner’s office and South Carolina Highway Patrol are investigating.
