What to do if you’ve been in a car accident
A 24-year-old died in a fatal car wreck Monday afternoon near U.S. Highway 501.
S.C. Highway Patrol Cpl. Sonny Collins said the wreck happened around 1:50 p.m. A Chevrolet Corvette was traveling south on U.S. 501 and tried to navigate the exit ramp towards George Bishop Parkway.
The driver of the Corvette was traveling too fast for road conditions, Collins said, hit a curb and hit a Toyota mini-van. According to Horry County Fire and Rescue, the Corvette driver was ejected from the vehicle.
The driver of the Toyota was taken to the hospital for treatment, Collins said.
Horry County Coroner Robert Edge said on Tuesday Thaddeus Leshawn Hess, of Myrtle Beach, was the deceased individual.
