Posted on Jun 01, 2010
A woman was airlifted to New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington, NC following a single motorcycle crash early Saturday afternoon on S.C. 9 near Loris, SC.

The woman lost control of her motorcycle when she was trying to stop and make a turn. She then skidded on her side down the road. She had been riding with a group of motorcycles when the accident occurred.

South Carolina Highway Patrol, who responded at the scene, says they believe her injuries were not life-threatening and that she was alert at the scene while being treated by the medical crew.

This motorcycle accident was the fifth that Highway Patrol had responded to since the beginning of Altantic Beach Memorial Day Bikefest, which was kicked off in the Grand Strand that Friday.
