HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WBTW) — A Conway man was arrested Friday after South Carolina Highway Patrol (SCHP) Troopers said he hit a pedestrian with a garbage truck July 5 and left the scene.

The incident happened around 9 a.m. July 5 on US 501 at Intracoastal Waterway Bridge. One person was transported to the hospital with injuries, according to Horry County Fire Rescue.
