MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -

Three people have been killed when motorcycles and vehicles have collided in the last three days in Myrtle Beach.

A man and a woman on a motorcycle were killed in a crash near the ocean in Myrtle Beach on Friday afternoon, police said. A motorcyclist was also killed in a hit and run crash involving a van on Wednesday night.

 The most recent crash happened around 6:30 pm at 30th Ave.  North and Kings Highway, Myrtle Beach Police said.

The crash happened when the motorcycle was traveling north on Kings Highway and crossed lanes into the southbound lanes of traffic and collided with a car, said Lt. John Bertang of the Myrtle Beach Police.

The two people on the motorcycle were not wearing helmets and died from blunt force trauma, said Darris Fowler, Deputy Horry County Coroner. Fowler identified the motorcycle driver as Steven Williams, 40, from Georgia. The female passenger on the motorcycle was identified as Taquisha Wilson, 33, of Missouri.

The occupants of the car, a late-model lime green Volkswagen Beetle, were not injured.

The Friday crash is the second fatal wreck in the last three days involving a motorcycle.

Previous story: Motorcyclist killed in hit and run crash

Myrtle Beach police detectives are still searching the hit-and-run driver in the crash Wednesday night that killed a motorcyclist.

According to Captain David Knipes, the crash happened around 8:30 p.m. at the intersection of US 501 and Grissom Parkway.

Knipes said the driver of a Green 2012 Kawasaki was killed after being struck by a white van that failed to yield the right of way.

Horry County Deputy Coroner Tamara Willard identifies the victim as Andre Price, 46, of Lumberton, North Carolina.

Willard says Price was pronounced dead  at Grand Strand Regional Medical center at 9:18 p.m.

The van did not stop and fled the scene south on Robert Grissom Parkway, said Knipes.

Witnesses told police the van was a white panel work style van with some type of rack with a blue tarp on the top, dual doors & windows on the rear.

Price was wearing a helmet but it came off sometime during the collision, Knipes said.

Anyone with information on the van or who witnessed the crash should call the Myrtle Beach Police Department at 843-918-1382
