According to the Clemson University Police Department, a student at Clemson University has been determined to be the person who is responsible for the death of a pedestrian who was involved in an accident involving an automobile. The pedestrian was involved in an accident with a car. The victim passed away as a direct result of the deadly collision that occurred between the pedestrian and the car.
Chief Deputy Coroner Andrew Wilson was able to positively identify the pedestrian who was run over by a vehicle as 68-year-old Robert Barrett of Clemson. Barrett was a resident of Clemson. The incident took place shortly after 8:45 o’clock in the evening on Highway 93 near to where it intersects with Perimeter Road. Barrett’s health was fairly critical when deputies got on the scene, and he needed to be sent to the hospital as quickly as it was possible, according to the Clemson Police Department. Barrett was sent in an ambulance, and while there, multiple attempts were made to bring him back to life; however, he did not exhibit any evidence of recognizing any of the interventions that were made on his behalf.
When the police spoke with Michael Lee Lyon III, they observed that he exuded a potent odor that was comparable to that of marijuana and that he appeared to be in a state of shock with his eyes appearing glossy and dilated. Additionally, they noted that he had a physique that was consistent with someone who had recently used marijuana. The police have provided us with this information. Furthermore, it would appear that he was under the effect of alcohol at the time in question.
They allege that they were able to smell a foul odor emanating from within the vehicle itself as they approached the vehicle that he was driving and that they were able to do so when they neared the vehicle. After the crash, Lyon’s roommate reportedly got out of the car and retrieved the dog from the vehicle, as stated in the police report. It would appear that the dog was present in Lyon’s vehicle at the time of the incident; however, the dog was removed from the vehicle after the event had taken place.
