Driver charged with attempted murder, accused of hitting two women with car

PAWLEY'S ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - The Georgetown County Sheriff's Office has charged a woman with attempted murder after they say she intentionally hit two women with her car and then turned around and hit one of them again.

Authorities have charged Ivory R. Wilson with two counts of attempted murder. It all started around 10:16 a.m. on Pawley's Island when deputies responded to the area of Ben Horry Trail in reference to a pedestrian that had been hit by a vehicle.

According to investigators, Wilson hit two pedestrians then turned her SUV around and hit one of the pedestrians a second time. Investigators say the incident stemmed from a dispute Wilson had with one of the pedestrians earlier Friday morning.

One victim has been transported the Georgetown Memorial Hospital. The other was transported to the Waccamaw Medical Center for treatment of their injuries.

While deputies were responding to the incident, a drive-by shooting incident was called in on Grate Avenue where the suspects' vehicle was involved, according to authorities.

Georgetown County Sheriff's investigators are investigating this incident and have developed leads that the two incidents are related.
