A passenger on a mo-ped was died Thursday, a day after being involved in a vehicle crash in Horry County, according to authorities.
The crash occurred about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday along S.C. 9, said Lance Cpl. Judd Jones with the S.C. Highway Patrol.
A 2007 Toyota driven by a 47-year-old woman was going north when it struck the rear of the 2014 VIP mo-ped, which was also going north on S.C. 9, Jones said. The mo-ped was driven by a 51-year-old man, who was taken to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center for treatment of injuries.
The passenger, whose identity has not been released by the Horry County Coroner’s Office, was also taken to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center and died on Thursday, Jones said.
