GEORGETOWN, S.C. — The deaths of three people in a boating accident during a storm earlier this year has South Carolina officials considering ferry service to Sandy Island again.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported that the the Coast Regional Transportation Authority will review bids Monday in Georgetown for a regularly scheduled ferry boat service for Sandy
Island residents.

The authority will decide whether to issue a recommendation for a contractor or request more information from the applicants. Georgetown County has been working with Coast RTA for several
months in the wake of a boating accident Feb. 18, when three people were killed on their way home to Sandy Island during a storm.

About 100 people live on the island, which is only accessible by boat.
