The crash happened about 3:50 a.m. on U.S. 17 and Queens Harbour Boulevard, according to Cpl. Sonny Collins with the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
The pedestrian was taken to a local hospital with “serious injuries,” Collins said.
The skateboarder was in the roadway illegally, so no charges are expected to be filed against the officer, Collins said.
