Conway, SC - CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - One man has died following a two-car collision at the PYA Curve near Conway Thursday morning.

Horry County Coroner Robert Edge said Marc Tyler Neidig, 26, of Longs, died at 10:05 a.m. as he was being transferred from the Conway Medical Center to the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.

Neidig was involved in a two-car collision around 8 a.m. Thursday that shut down traffic in the southbound lanes of US-501. Officials on scene said it appeared a white Scion was turning left onto Cox Ferry Road when it collided with a black pickup truck.

A second victim was transferred to an area hospital for treatment, but their condition remains unknown.
