MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — A Virginia woman has died after a motorcycle crash in South Carolina that killed her husband last week.

Horry County officials say 36-year-old Stephanie Weeks, of Blacksburg, Va., died late Saturday morning.

Her husband, 43-year-old Thomas Weeks III, died Friday afternoon in the crash involving a sports utility vehicle on the U.S. 17 Bypass. Myrtle Beach police say two other people were sent to the hospital.

Police say it appears the 3-wheeled motorcycle the couple was on crossed into the oncoming lane of traffic and collided with the SUV.
