Police continue to search for vehicle in North Myrtle Beach fatal hit-and-run

The search continued Friday for a vehicle involved in the hit-and-run death of a woman in North Myrtle Beach, according to authorities.

Corissa L. Irvin, 21, of New Hampshire, was pronounced dead at the scene about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday after she was struck by a vehicle on U.S. 17 between Ocean Creek Drive and 48th Avenue South near the Cracker Barrel restaurant.

Police believe a 1995-2005 Chevrolet Astro van or a 1995-2005 GMC Safari van was likely the vehicle involved in Irvin’s death. But no new information about her death or the search for the vehicle was available Friday, said Nicole Aiello, North Myrtle Beach spokeswoman.

The S.C. Highway Patrol Multidisciplinary Accident Investigation Team, which is seeking help from the public, also outlined the type of damage the vehicle involved could have. The van would have damage to the front end, especially on the front right headlight assembly, and possible windshield damage.

Police are asking for anyone who sees a vehicle fitting this description with this type of damage to contact officers immediately.

Authorities think Irvin was walking home after work when she was struck. Irvin's death is the third within a month on the Grand Strand involving a pedestrian and vehicle.

Anyone who sees a vehicle of that type with that kind of damage should call the North Myrtle Beach Public Safety Department at 843-280-5511 or the S.C. Highway Patrol at 843-661-4705 or *HP on a mobile phone.
