SENECA, S.C. (AP) — A man has been arrested in a fatal hit and run involving a motorcycle in South Carolina.

Highway Patrol Lance Cpl. Joe Hovis told news outlets that 21-year-old Anthony Brian Ward was arrested Saturday and charged with leaving the scene with death and reckless homicide.

Ward is being held in the Oconee County jail. It was not known if he has an attorney yet. Ward is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 7.
