Conway man killed in motorcycle crash on Highway 90


A Conway man was killed Thursday morning when his motorcycle collided with a vehicle on Highway 90 near East Cox Ferry Road.

Walter Curtis Bass, 27, of Conway, died of injuries he sustained in the incident, said Horry County Deputy Coroner Michelle McSpadden.

Police responded to the crash around 11:30 a.m. Thursday where a 1997 four-door Chevrolet was traveling West on the highway, according to Cpl. Sonny Collins with the S.C. Highway Patrol.

Bass, on a 1994 Suzuki motorcycle, was traveling East on the highway when the vehicle attempted to turn left into a private parking lot but failed to yield to the motorcycle, Collins said.

Bass was not wearing a helmet, Collins said.

No charges have been filed as of Friday, Collins said. The S.C. Highway Patrol is investigating the incident.
