The victim told police that about 4:45 a.m. Tuesday he left his girlfriend’s home near North Myrtle Beach and was driving along U.S. 17 near 82nd Avenue North when she drove up next to him and tried to run him off the road, police said.
The victim said the 18-year-old woman stopped her vehicle in front of his, so he stopped and then she backed up toward him, according to the report.
