An Horry County man died and another person was hurt in a single-vehicle crash northwest of Conway on Tuesday night, authorities say.
The crash happened just after 9 pm just off US 501 at the intersection of Enoch Road and Party Pines Road, which is about 2 miles southeast of the SC 22 intersection with US 50, the SC Highway Patrol said.
According to Sgt. Bob Beres of the South Carolina Highway Patrol, the truck ran off the right side of the road, hit two trees, and then overturned. The driver was ejected from the car. Horry County Deputy Coroner Darris Fowler identified the victim as Joe Causey II, age 16, from Aynor.
Sgt. Beres says neither the driver nor the passenger were wearing seatbelts, and the passenger was taken to Grand Strand Regional Hospital for treatment.
The SCHP is investigating the crash.
