MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A fugitive trying to flee from officers was involved in a crash near 29th Ave. North and Highway 17 Bypass, then fled into Broadway at the Beach, stole a truck, and fled the scene, according to officials. Another person is in custody in connection with the incident.

Officers were trying to apprehend a fugitive from justice in the area of 48th Avenue North and Hwy. 17 Bypass, according to Lt. Joey Crosby with Myrtle Beach Police. While trying to flee from officers, the subject was involved in an accident at 29th Ave. N. and Hwy. 17 Bypass.

The subject or subjects then fled from officers into Broadway at the Beach, Lt. Crosby said. There, the subject or subjects stole a white GMC truck with the license plate MBF574 and fled the scene. Officers are trying to locate this truck. Police say it has a ladder rack over the bed and a black trailer attached.

WMBF crews spoke to one construction worker who says he and others subdued one of the suspects near the former Hard Rock Cafe'.

"I opened the door and got into the vehicle, starting to step into it, and he looks over at me and sees me all scared and just turned and hit the gas and bashed into a trash can and pretty much was just trying to get me off the truck which he did and then I went up to the Hard Rock to find his friend because I didn't want him to get away." said Neil Gibson.

"The guy got flipped over and thrown around. We weren't going to let him go. I didn't want him to get away. I knew his buddy had my bosses truck. That's our life right there. That's the food, ya know?"

Lt. Crosby confirmed one person has been arrested in connection with the incident, and his name and charges will be release once warrants have been served. At least one weapon was also recovered.
