A man driving in Murrells Inlet suffered a heart attack and crashed his vehicle at about 3 p.m. today.
The man, whose name has not yet been released, later died at Waccamaw Community Hospital, according to Coroner Kenny Johnson.
The initial report was one person involved was having a seizure but a followup report indicted he had stopped breathing.
When emergency crews arrived it was reported the car hit a tree and the driver was in cardiac arrest.
Johnson said the incident has been classified as a natural death and not a traffic fatality.

The National Transportation Safety Board is recommending lowering the legal blood alcohol content limit for drivers from .08 percent to .05 percent. They say it will decrease the number of traffic fatalities. Do you agree with this idea?
