Over the weekend, Horry County saw several fatal motorcycle accidents and a pedestrian accident. Since the beginning of the year, eleven people have died on Horry County roads.
Most recently, there was a crash in Conway on Dongola Highway near Tidway Circle that killed one and sent another to the hospital with injuries around 5:30am this morning. A pickup truck ran into an 18-wheeler and the passenger was killed.
Many accidents are preventable but drivers need to limit their distractions and be aware of other drivers and pedestrians. With increased traffic along Conway and Myrtle Beach during the summer months, there are too many car accidents and motorcycle accidents caused by drivers being careless and/or reckless.
