A woman passed away on Saturday after she was struck while riding her bicycle in North Myrtle Beach. The collision happened at approximately 3:10 p.m. on Highway 17 and 33rd Avenue South. The initial investigation revealed that 57-year-old Lisa LaCroix was riding her bike home from work and crossing Highway 17 during a green light.
The driver who struck Lisa has been identified as Kenneth McLaurin. He turned in front of LaCroix, failing to yield the right of way, and hit her. The impact threw LaCroix over the handlebars, and the left side of her head hit McLaurin’s car windshield. Ultimately, she landed on the pavement. LaCroix was treated at the scene for a head injury. Police said she fought the injury but later passed away on Monday after a stroke. LaCroix died from multiple traumatic injuries from the accident.
McLaurin told cops he could not see Lacroix crossing because of traffic on the highway and the uprights of his windscreen, or A-pillar, blocking his view while turning. The report states that he was issued a citation for failure to yield right of way and found to be at fault.
At The Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor, our hearts and prayers go out to the family, friends, and loved ones of Lisa who suffered this tragic loss of life. We share our condolences for this devastating bicycle accident.
