Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- A Shaw airman and the man he was apparently fighting with both died after they were hit by a vehicle over the weekend.

Technical Sergeant Otis H. Starks, 33, of the 20th Force Support Squadron, and Corey Trapp, 35, were struck and killed by a car around 3:30AM Saturday.

Starks is survived by his wife and two children.

According to Richland County Coroner Gary Watts, the two were involved in a physical altercation near the intersection of Decker Blvd. and Two Notch Road, when their fight spilled into the roadway.

During their fight they apparently rolled into the path of an oncoming car, that struck and killed both men. 

The Highway Patrol continues to investigate the deaths.
