Horry County Fire Rescue were on scene of a fatal wreck in the Conway area Thursday morning.

South Carolina Highway Patrol Cpl. Sonny Collins said the driver was transported to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center and a passenger was killed.

Crews were called to Juniper Bay Road and Jeffords Drive about 7:45 a.m. after reports of a vehicle rollover, said Tony Casey with HCFR. A 2014 Hyundai Elantra was driving east when it ran off the right side of the road, striking a ditch, Collins said.

The single-vehicle crash happened just off U.S. 378.

South Carolina Highway Patrol also worked the crash.
