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.
