HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – An Aynor woman died Wednesday night after being transported to Grand Strand Trauma Center following an accident involving a vehicle and a motorcycle at the intersection of Highway 319 at Old Tram Road, according to SCHP Lance Cpl. Judd Jones.

Jennifer Hanna, age 37, died at the hospital around 6:38 p.m. from injuries she sustained in the accident, according to Tamara Willard, Horry County Chief Deputy Coroner.

Cpl. Jones says around 4:53 p.m., a 2007 Hyundai was travelling north on Highway 319 and attempted to turn left on Old Tram Road in front of the 2009 Harley Davidson traveling south, causing the motorcycle to strike it.

The driver of the 2007 Hyundai was not injured and the passenger was transported to Grand Strand Medical Center. The status of the passenger is unknown.

Cpl. Jones says Hanna was wearing a helmet.

The incident remains under investigation by the SCHP.

According to the North Myrtle Beach Fire Rescue Facebook page, Hanna was a Firefighter/EMT for NMBFR. The page said, "she will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved her. There will definitely be a void that can never be filled." Hanna was transferred to the Fire Rescue Division in 2015; just three weeks prior to her first shift, her husband who was a firefighter and EMT for Horry County died from a motorcycle accident.
