Chase Stokes and the Outer Banks team are mourning the death of a stand-in killed in a hit-and-run accident.

Investigators with the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office say that a pedestrian was crossing a road at 2:30 AM July 5, when he was struck by a car. The vehicle fled the scene. According to witnesses, the pedestrian was struck again by another vehicle that also fled the scene. Charleston police have not filed any charges and continue to search for the original vehicle. 

The pedestrian was then taken to the hospital. He later succumbed. Kimmie Stewart Casting would confirm the identity of this pedestrian later. Alexander Jennings.

“AJ was a beautiful, kind soul and a bright light every day on set,” the agency said in a Facebook post. He moved from New York to Charleston to be our John B stand/photo double in this season. My heart breaks for the family of AJ who has suddenly lost his wife and children. We are thinking of them and sending our condolences to their loved ones.
