TERRE HAUT, Ind. (AP) — Elected officials in Indiana are mourning a county council member and his wife who recently died after being struck by a car in South Carolina.
Vigo County Councilman Donald Morris and his wife Cheryl Hart were visiting Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Two vehicles collided Thursday afternoon and one struck Morris and Hart, who were pedestrians.
The Horry County coroner’s office in South Carolina identified Morris and Hart. The 67-year-old Morris was a newly-elected county councilman and previously a city council member in Terre Haute, Indiana.
Hart was 63. Indiana Congressman Larry Bucshon says Morris was a “true public servant.”
