COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- A man has died after being struck and killed by a truck outside the Dorn Veterans Administration Medical Center in Columbia.
 
Columbia police spokeswoman Jennifer Timmons says the Tuesday morning death appears to be an accident, but officials are still investigating.
 
Timmons says she is not yet able to release the name nor the age of the pedestrian, nor that of the truck driver.
 
Timmons says the victim was walking on the sidewalk while being assisted by another person. She says a pickup truck attempting to park jumped the curb and struck the man.

The spokeswoman says the man was pinned under the vehicle. He was taken to Palmetto Health Richland Hospital's trauma center, where he was pronounced dead. Timmons says no one else was hurt.
