COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The Richland County coroner's office is searching for the kin for a man who was struck and killed in a collision on Monday. 

The coroner's office identified Dennis William Allen, 58, as the victim of a recent accident on Taylor Street in Columbia. 

Allen was in his wheelchair crossing the road when he was struck by a vehicle. He was then taken to Palmetto Health Baptist Hospital by an ambulance but passed away on Thursday. 

An autopsy found that his cause of death was due to complications of blunt force trauma to the body.
