HORRY COUNTY, S.C. (WBTW) — A motorcyclist was killed Monday afternoon in a collision with a pickup truck on Highway 501 near Conway, according to the South Carolina Highway Patrol.

It happened at about 3:20 p.m. in the area of Amber Lane about 2 miles south of Conway, SCHP Lance Cpl. Lena Butler said.

The 1996 Suzuki motorcycle was traveling north on Highway 501 when it collided with a 2009 Ford F-250 pick that was making a lefthand turn from Amber Lane onto Highway 501, Butler said. The driver of the pickup was alone in the vehicle and was not hurt.

Traffic in the area was blocked for an extended period of time after the crash because of a fuel spill, according to Horry County Fire Rescue.

No additional information was immediately available. The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating.
