Coroner identifies pedestrian killed in Horry County Sunday night

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A pedestrian was struck and killed on an Horry County road Sunday evening.

Luis Martinez, 39, died after being struck by a vehicle on Shetland Lane at about 11 p.m. Sunday, according to Horry County Deputy Coroner Tamara Willard. Martinez died at the scene from multiple trauma.

Troopers said the driver of a 2000 Chevy Cavalier hit and killed a pedestrian.

At this time no charges will be filed against the driver, according to troopers, because it appears the pedestrian was in the roadway illegally.

This crash remains under investigation by South Carolina Highway Patrol.
