Myrtle Beach motorcycle crash claims retired deputy

A 39 year-old Myrtle Beach man was killed last night on his motorcycle when he crossed the center lanes and was struck by an SUV. The deceased was a retired deputy at the Horry County Sheriff’s Office.

The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center due the extensive injuries he sustained in the collision. According to police reports, after he was hit by the SUV he crashed head-on with another vehicle and was ejected from the bike.

The man had retired from the department last year where he had worked as a certified training instructor and road deputy for 13 years, the Rock Hill Herald reports.

Our sympathies go out to the man’s friends and family during this difficult time.
