On Tuesday at about 2:30 a.m. local time, a pedestrian—later identified as Jennings—was hit by a car. He was reportedly struck by two vehicles while crossing the road, according to law enforcement sources. Both cars sped off the scene. After being transported to the Medical University of South Carolina, he passed away just after 3 a.m. on July 5, according to the office. His time of death was recorded by the coroner’s office as 3:13 a.m.

According to the sheriff’s office, after the collision, officers in downtown Charleston stopped the second car that struck Jennings. The first driver is still being sought after by investigators. No charges have been filed, but the crash is still under inspection. Since the authorities lack a description of the first vehicle, it has not yet been found.

Jennings served as Chase Stokes’ body double while he was portraying “John B.” The third season of the show is now being filmed in the Charleston region. According to the casting agency, Jennings relocated from New York to Charleston to join the “Outer Banks” cast for the current season. The third season of the show, which follows a group of young treasure hunters in North Carolina’s Outer Banks, is now being filmed there.
