An 89-year-old man died following a head-on crash in Horry County Thursday morning, authorities said.

He was identified as James A. King of Winson-Salem, North Carolina, who died Thursday afternoon at Grand Strand Medical Center from his injuries, Horry County Deputy Coroner Chris Dontell said in a news release.

According to Master Trooper Brian Lee with the South Carolina Highway Patrol, the wreck happened at about 7:57 a.m. on Burcale Road and involved two vehicles. Dontell said the crash happened near the Ryan Lane intersection.

A westbound 2002 BMW crossed the center line and struck a 2011 Cadillac heading east.

The driver of the Cadillac, King, died as a result of the crash, Lee said. The driver of the BMW was taken to a local hospital. Both of them were wearing seatbelts.

The wreck remains under investigation by the Highway Patrol.
