A man operating a moped was killed in an early Saturday morning hit-and-run in Conway on U.S. 701 South, according to Tony Hendrick, Horry County deputy coroner.
The crash happened in Conway city limits about 4:20 a.m. on U.S. 701 and New Road, according to Hendrick. Conway police were called to the deadly collision, involving the moped and one other vehicle, according to a release from Sgt. Darren Alston with Conway police.
Conway investigating officers determined the moped was hit from behind by a burgundy van, and the van fled the scene following the crash, Alston said.
The suspect vehicle would have damage to the front passenger side and missing part of its front fender, Alston said.
