What to do if you’ve been in a car accident
One person has died in a two-vehicle crash on Highway 17 in Murrells Inlet, according to Cpl. Sonny Collins with the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
According to Collins, a 2012 Honda was attempting to cross U.S. 17 at Tadlock Drive around 2 p.m. and turned in front of a 2018 Chevy pickup and was struck. The driver of the Honda, who was wearing a seat belt, was killed and the driver of the pickup was transported to a hospital.
Horry County Coroner’s Robert Edge said the identity of the person killed will likely be released Friday morning after the family of the deceased has been contacted, and the condition of the pickup driver was not immediately known.
No charges are expected in the crash, Collins said.
