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.
