A Conway man died after the motorcycle he was riding crashed with a car Sunday afternoon in the Myrtle Beach area.

Milton Martin, 52, of Conway was pronounced dead on the scene, said Horry County chief deputy coroner Tamara Willard.

Martin was heading north on a Harley Davidson motorcycle on U.S. Highway 17 at about 2:50 p.m. Sunday while the driver of a Chevrolet Impala was heading south, said Sr. Trooper Hannah Wimberly with the S.C. Highway Patrol.

The driver of the Impala had a green arrow to turn left onto Lake Arrowhead Road and Martin did not stop for the red light. Wimberly said Martin laid his bike down and into the path of the Impala.

No charges will be filed, Wimberly said.
