A 74-year-old woman was killed in a car crash Friday afternoon, and the S.C. Highway Patrol is investigating.

Carole Bishop, of Murrells Inlet, died from trauma at 12:37 p.m. Friday, according to Horry County Deputy Coroner Darris Fowler. The accident occurred at 12:05 p.m. at the intersection of Knollwood Drive and Highway 707 in Murrells Inlet.
