A man from Fayetteville, North Carolina died after a single motorcycle crash near Myrtle Beach.

Horry County Deputy Coroner Darris Fowler says Melverton McLaren, 61, was taken to Grand Strand Medical Center to be treated for injuries he sustained in the crash. McLaren later died. 


The crash happened around 6:30 p.m. on Saturday at the interchange for S.C. Highway 9 and S.C Highway 31 in Horry County, according to Fowler.
