Posted on May 26, 2010
The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating a crash that occurred late Tuesday evening and left a motorcyclist injured.

A Suzuki motorcycle was found in pieces off the side of the road near George Bishop Parkway and Jacob Lane in Myrtle Beach. A North Carolina license plate and a helmet were also found nearby.

A witness says he saw the injured man near the scene around 10 pm on Tuesday. The man, visibly shaken, walked across the road with blood on his hands. His head did not appear to be wounded, but he seemed confused and did not know the location of his motorcycle. He is said to be in his mid-twenties and to have left the scene on the back of a friend's motorcycle.

Highway Patrol and members of the Horry County Fire Rescue will continue to investigate the accident and will release more information as it becomes available.
