MYRTLE BEACH — An Horry County man died Wednesday night, three days after he was involved in a motorcycle crash near Little River, according to authorities.
Devontae Shepherd, 19, of Mt. Zion Road died about 6 p.m. Wednesday while being treated at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center for a head injury, Horry County Coroner Robert Edge said Thursday afternoon.
