A woman turned herself in after a fatal hit-and-run crash in North Myrtle Beach, detectives confirmed on Tuesday

William Hogue Sr., 61, of Fayetteville, died Friday in Myrtle Beach, where he was visiting for the city’s annual Atlantic Beach Bike Week.

Investigators say Hogue Sr. and a female passenger were headed south on U.S. Highway 17 when a black sedan pulled out in front of them near the Duplin Winery. What happened next makes Hogue Sr.’s death especially hard to handle, his son, William Hogue Jr., said.

“They hit him. They got out of the vehicle, checked on him, got back into the vehicle, and then they fled,” Hogue Jr. said.
