A man was reported dead on a side road along SC 544/Dick Pond Road just east of the US 17 Bypass on Thursday afternoon.

The incident was reported around 2:30 pm near the Fun Warehouse at 2349 Dick Pond Road/SC 544, according to authorities.

The incident apparently happened off the Fun Warehouse property on a side road in between the Fun Warehouse and a camping store.

Horry County Police are on the scene and the Horry County Coroner is traveling to the site.
