A Greenville man accused of striking and killing a pedestrian and leaving the scene made his first court appearance Monday morning at the Pitt County Detention Center. 

Charles Benjamin Smith Jr., 25, was standing in a right turn lane on the northbound side of the road near North Memorial Drive and West Gum Road, when he was struck by a 2012 Chrysler sedan being driven by 33-year-old Steven Jerome Keel of Greenville on Saturday morning.  

Smith Jr., was pronounced dead at the scene.

Prior to the crash, Greenville Police said Smith was visiting friends and had been drinking. They are unsure where Smith was headed at the time of the crash.  

A crash report indicates that Keel’s Chrysler was traveling 50 mph when it struck Smith.  

“Smith was visiting friends in the area,” Kristen Hunter, the department’s public information officer said. “Smith’s friends said he was going to go for a walk prior to getting hit by the vehicle.”

Keel was arrested on Sunday in the incident.  A judge kept Keel’s bond at $25,000 and Keel’s next court date is on June 27.
