GARDEN CITY, SC (WBTW) – One person has been taken to a hospital after what police call a ‘traffic incident’ involving an Horry County police vehicle.

It happened near Holly Avenue according to information HCPD posted online Sunday morning.

The person was taken to a hospital by Murrells Inlet-Garden City Fire Rescue. No one with the department was hurt.

Beachgoer Megan Lee said she saw the whole thing unfold.

“She was sitting maybe 10-15 yards away from me,” she said. “I saw the police SUV coming down the beach from the south. I don’t know if he didn’t see her or what but he just kept going straight for her. I heard the chair crunch and her screaming.”

The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating, the department said. HCPD Professional Standards Division will also be investigating.
