A passenger on a mo-ped who died after a crash last week is identified as Rita Slone, 59, Aynor, according to Horry County Chief Deputy Coroner Tamara Williard.
The crash occurred about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday along S.C. 9, said Lance Cpl. Judd Jones with the S.C. Highway Patrol. Slone died the next day at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center.
A 2007 Toyota driven by a 47-year-old woman was going north when it struck the rear of the 2014 VIP mo-ped, which was also going north on S.C. 9, Jones said. The mo-ped was driven by a 51-year-old man, who was taken to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center for treatment of injuries.
