An Horry County police detective was injured in a head-on crash near Conway Tuesday afternoon that left another person dead.
The crash happened on the S.C. 544 overpass over U.S. 501 around 2 p.m. Tuesday, according to Brian Lee with the South Carolina Highway Patrol.
Lee said a 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier was traveling east on S.C. 544 when the vehicle crossed the center line and struck a 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe head-on.
The Horry County Police Department said on Facebook Wednesday that the Tahoe was an unmarked HCPD vehicle.
The driver of the Cavalier was not wearing a seat belt and died due to the wreck.
The deceased was identified as 46-year-old Allen Alexis Brown, who moved to Horry County from Sumter about four or five months ago, Horry County Chief Deputy Coroner Tamara Willard said in a news release.
Brown was taken to Conway Medical Center, where he succumbed to multiple traumatic injuries.
The driver of the Tahoe, the detective, was wearing a seat belt and received medical attention. The detective was taken to a local hospital after suffering minor injuries in the crash.
The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating the wreck.
