Man charged in pedestrian fatality
North Charleston Police officers continue to investigate an auto-pedestrian accident that took place around 7 p.m., Monday, Dec. 30, at Dorchester and Ashley Phosphate Roads.
The initial investigation shows the female victim – 71-year-old Barbara Ann Wisdom – was standing on the edge of Dorchester Road near the CVS Pharmacy when the driver of a Buick LeSabre, Kevin Larone Ivery, 25, of Peppercorn Lane, struck the victim.
Wisdom, a nun from New York, according to published reports, was transported to the hospital in critical condition where she later died. She was a nun for 25 years in New York prior to moving to South Carolina two months ago, reports say.
Ivery is currently charged with Habitual Offender and Driving Under Suspension more than 3rd [more than three times] – additional charges may be added after the investigation is complete. He was transported to the Dorchester County Detention Center.
Ivery is expected to appear in bond court Tuesday.
