In an attempt to elude police on U.S. 17 early this morning, a woman is dead and man is in the hospital after slamming head on into an oncoming 18-wheeler.

The driver of the car, Ricky Bostic of Myrtle Beach, had an encounter with police at a gas station before fleeing the scene and hightailing it down the road. Moments later, the wreck occurred and U.S. 17 was shut down for more than five hours.

The Post and Courier has the most complete recount of the incident thus far; read it here.
