More than 141,000 traffic collisions were recorded in South Carolina in 2017. Here's why there were so many.

A driver is charged in connection to a deadly motorcycle crash on U.S. 501 in the Aynor area Wednesday morning, said Cpl. Sonny Collins with South Carolina Highway Patrol.

The two-vehicle crash happened about 9:10 a.m. at U.S. 501 and Enoch Road, Collins said. Horry County Deputy Coroner Darris Fowler said Bruce Allen Jr., 65 of Rockingham, North Carolina, died when his three wheel motorcycle struck a car that pulled out in front of him.

Collins said a 2015 Toyota Corolla pulled out from Enoch Road onto 501 in front of a motorcycle, killing the motorcyclist. The driver of the Toyota was transported to the hospital and will be charged with failure to yield the right of way, Collins said.

Horry County Fire Rescue also worked the scene.
