One man is dead and another is behind bars following an early morning crash in Chesnee.

Lance Corporal Bill Rhyne with the SC Highway Patrol said the crash happened on US 221 near Gossett Road around 1:20 a.m. Saturday.

Rhyne said 49-year-old Jason Barrett of Chesnee was driving south along US 221 in a 2010 Dodge Avenger when he struck a man that was walking in the road.

The crash knocked the man into the northbound lane, where he was struck by two oncoming vehicles, Rhyne said.

Coroner Rusty Clevenger identified the victim as Doyle Burke, 46, of Harvest Moon Lane, Chesnee.

Burke was killed in the crash, troopers said.

Barrett was charged with one count of felony DUI and is being held in the Spartanburg County Detention Center, Rhyne said.

The Highway Patrol's MAIT team is still investigating the crash.

Clevenger said an autopsy will be performed on the victim later Saturday.
