      Road dedicated to fallen Horry County officer

      Officers attend the road dedication Monday morning.

      The intersection of South Carolina highways 9 and 410 was dedicated Monday morning to the first Horry County police officer killed in the line of duty, Lt. John Ronald Floyd.

      Floyd was killed in a motor vehicle accident on June 25, 1986 while responding to a late night prowler call in the Green Sea section of Horry County.

      In May, the South Carolina House of Representatives passed a resolution to allow the dedication.

      The intersection will be called the Lieutenant John Ronald Floyd Intersection.
