      Man in fight after SC game dies being hit by truck

      A Marion man has died after he was involved in a fight hours after the Alabama-South Carolina football game and was hit by a truck.

      Multiple media outlets reported 20-year-old Allen Gasque GAS-kwee) was pronounced dead at Palmetto Health Richland hospital in Columbia on Saturday night.

      Richland County sheriff's spokeswoman Monique Mack says the fight started a block from Williams-Brice Stadium as a road rage incident. Witnesses said the fight developed after a truck cut off a car trying to leave a parking lot.

      Coroner Gary Watts says Gasque fell or was pushed under a passing truck and died from head injuries.

      Mack says 25-year-old Curtis Simms of Richland County has been charged with aggravated breach of peace. Mack says the investigation is continuing.

      It was unclear if Simms had an attorney.
