Man dies in crash after police chase in Horry Co.

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A police chase Tuesday night culminated in a crash, killing 25-year-old Bryan Lamm of Myrtle Beach, according to Sergeant Jeff Benton with the Horry County Sheriff's Office.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol message board states around 11:15 p.m. Tuesday, a trooper tried to stop Lamm's vehicle that disregarded a traffic sign near Highway 22. Authorities say it started while Lamm was driving east on Highway 90.

Lamm refused to stop, and the chase ensued. Troopers chased Lamm south on Long Bay Road where authorities estimate he was driving 90 miles per hour. The trooper lost sight of Lamm but when he caught up to him, he had crashed into a ditch and then smashed into a tree.

Horry County Chief Deputy Coroner Tamara Willard says Lamm died at 11:30 p.m. from multiple trauma due to the accident.

The Horry County Sheriff's Office is still investigating the crash. They discovered Lamm's driver's license was suspended. A toxicology report is also being ordered to determine if alcohol or drugs may have been a factor.

State law mandates that the county sheriff investigates when a trooper is involved in a traffic incident.
