Last Friday afternoon, an 84 year old woman was driving a 1996 Ford Ranger truck down Highway 701 near Loris. Because she was driving too fast for conditions, when another vehicle slowed to stop and turn, the woman swerved into the other lane to avoid hitting that driver.
When she swerved into the other lane, she hit an oncoming vehicle with two people inside.
All three were flown to Grand Strand Regional Hospital. The 84 year old woman was killed.
