The Horry County Coroner's Office has identified the person killed in an Oct. 31  crash on U.S. 701 near Conway.

Horry County Deputy Coroner Michelle McSpadden on Wednesday night identified the victim as 30-year old Shereeca Baker of the Myrtle Beach area.

McSpadden said Baker sustained fatal injuries in a vehicle collision on U.S. 701 south of Conway in the early morning hours of Oct. 31.

According to the S.C. Highway Patrol, a 1998 Ford Expedition with four people inside was traveling north on 701 when the vehicle ran off the right side of the road and overturned. All of the occupants were ejected from the vehicle. 

The three other individuals were taken to local hospitals, Cpl. Sonny Collins said.

McSpadden said releasing the identity of the deceased was delayed because Baker's next-of-kin was also seriously injured in the same collision. That person is still recovering.
