NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The driver of the vehicle said to have been involved in a fatal hit-and-run early Monday morning in the North Myrtle Beach area went to the police department and was interviewed after watching the news Monday night, according to officials.

According to an SCHP flyer, the suspect vehicle was a 2010-2015 cyber grey metallic Chevrolet Camaro with damage to the front passenger side. 

Police are no longer seeking the Camaro or its driver; after watching the news, the driver went to the North Myrtle Beach Police Department and was interviewed, according to a news release from NMB Police. The vehicle has been seized for processing and the investigation continues. The release does not indicate whether charges are being filed against the driver.

The victim, Andrew McGuire, 23, of Myrtle Beach, died from his injuries after being struck by a vehicle on S.C. 22, according to Deputy Coroner Darris Fowler.

The wreck was first reported by the SCHP at 1:49 a.m. Monday.

The MAIT, which stands for Multi-Disciplinary Accident Investigation Team, was called out to the scene where McGuire was found after it was discovered that the suspect left the scene.

North Myrtle Beach officials said McGuire was struck by other vehicles after the initial hit before one driver finally stopped and called police. Certain parts of the highway were closed until around 1 p.m., so that the MAIT could rework the scene from every angle.

"Somebody out there at the scene of a hit-and-run may have noticed a vehicle and not thought a lot about it. But then a couple of days later when they see us looking for a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run, they may call and say 'Hey, I remember seeing a certain type of vehicle.'" said SCHP Cpl. Sonny Collins.

He added there is no detail too small when it comes to a hit-and-run.

"Sometimes it's just the break we need to send us in the right direction and get some closure because when you do have a hit-and-run, especially a fatality, we have two goals here. One, we want to bring somebody to justice that did this, and No. 2, we want to be able to bring some closure to that family," Collins said.
