HONEA PATH, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A Honea Path man was hit and killed by a car not long after his dog was hit by a car Tuesday morning, according to the Laurens County deputy coroner.

Deputy Coroner Vickie Cheek said 67-year-old Jeffrey Glancey had walked across U.S. 25 in front of his home to go pick up his dog that had been hit by a car.

As Glancey was walking back across the street, he was hit and killed by a car too, Cheek said.

The accident happened about 7 a.m. not far from Gin Mill Road.

Glancey is survived by his wife and four children.

Troopers said Glancey was in the roadway illegally when he was hit by a car traveling north on U.S. 25.

After that car hit Glancey, it hit a pickup truck that was stopped in the left turn lane on the south side of the highway, troopers said. The driver of both the car and truck were not injured.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating the accident. Glancey was one of two pedestrians hit and killed in the Upstate on Tuesday morning.
