7-year-old killed in Aiken County crash

AIKEN COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA (WFXG) - A child in Langley, South Carolina was hit by a car while riding his bike with his brother Saturday evening. The Aiken County Coroner’s Office says 7 year-old Bryson Mikell was dead when they arrived.

The coroner’s office says the call came in at 6:35 p.m. and the incident took place on Chaffee St. at Ralph Green Dr.

Mikell and his brother were riding their bicycles on Ralph Greene Dr. and as Mikell attempted to cross Chaffee St. he was struck by the car. A friend of the Mikell family, Charity Harris, says this is not the first time a kid has been hit in this area. She says she was emotional when she got the news of Mikell’s death.

“I cried, I cried real bad…because I love kids. I do look out for adults to but the kids, the adults are supposed to look out for them more than you look out for adults,” Harris said.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday morning. The South Carolina Highway Patrol and MAIT is continuing the investigation.
