June 15 , 2024

Horry County, South Carolina — June 13, 2024 — According to 7 News WSPA.com, a Horry County Police Department (HCPD) law enforcement officer has been placed on administrative leave after a woman was hit and killed by a police vehicle on the beach, the department said in a statement.

The woman was hit near Nash Street at about 1:05 p.m. in the Myrtle Beach area, which is between the Myrtle Beach State Park and the Doubletree Resort by Hilton.

Killed By Police Vehicle

The police vehicle, a 2020 Ford Ranger Pickup truck, was driving north from Nash Street when it hit the woman facing east, the South Carolina Highway Patrol said. The woman died at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center.

“What occurred on the beach yesterday was a tragedy, and we know our community is hurting,” HCPD said. “Our hearts are with all those impacted by this loss. We also know our community has questions. We do, too.

“We have a responsibility to ensure the external and internal investigations occur without delay or interference. Horry County Police Department provides any access and information the South Carolina Highway Patrol may require to complete their investigation. At this time, the officer involved is on administrative leave. We stand ready to support our community and the family experiencing this tragic loss.”

No other information was immediately available. However, this isn’t the first time an incident like this has happened on a Horry County beach. In 2020, a person was hit by a Horry County police patrol car while lying on the beach in Garden City.
