Columbia, SC (WLTX) - The trial against the man police say punched another man after the USC Alabama game in 2010 will continue next week.

Police say after 27-year-old Curtis Simms punched Allen Gasque after the 2010 USC win over Alabama and knocked him into the roadway. The car Gasque was riding in ran him over and killed him.

Friday, Simms' defense attorneys questioned witnesses who say they saw the incident. One witness--Mike Davis, a former USC running back--was riding in the same car Simms was.

Davis painted a picture of the scene where the incident happened, describing crushing bone sounds.

"I knew that sound when I got out of the car," said Davis. "I actually saw the guy it was more than I wanted to see."

David added that he threw up.

Simms is on trial for involuntary manslaughter and breach of peace.
