Driver sought in hit-and-run that killed ‘Outer Banks’ crew member turns himself in
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Authorities say a man wanted in connection to a deadly July 5 hit-and-run on James Island turned himself in on Friday.
The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office says 22-year-old Nicholas Ashton Virgil Price turned himself in Friday morning and is charged with hit-and-run accident with death.
Alexander Jennings, of Grand Island, New York, died at MUSC from injuries he suffered in the crash, Coroner Bobbi Jo O’Neal said. A Facebook post from Kimmie Stewart Casting said the victim was working on the Netflix series “Outer Banks.” He was a photo double and stand-in for the show’s main character, John B, for the new season.
