Several weeks ago, a woman was walking near the intersection of Duffy Street and 30th Avenue North in North Myrtle Beach when she was struck from behind by a car that fled the scene.
The driver of the car did a hit and run, and the woman was taken to a local hospital for serious injuries. Once at the hospital, it was determined she had several fractures and needed an extensive surgery from the accident.
The driver later turned himself into authorities and was charged with hit and run and use of a vehicle without consent.
Thankfully, this 67-year-old woman was not injured any worse than she was and responders were able to get help quickly.
