Dawn Demaggio, 48, of the 1300 block of Freeman Harriss Road, was identified by Columbia County Deputy Coroner Bonnie King.

The wreck happened about 4 p.m. as Demaggio was driving west on the 5700 block of Wrightsboro Road just west of Water Branch Baptist Church outside Grovetown. Her car ran off the right side of the road, said Columbia County Sheriff’s Capt. Sharif Chochol.

Demaggio apparently over-corrected and crossed over the center line, with the car spinning sideways and then flipping multiple times before landing on its roof, facing the opposite direction in the right-side ditch, said Chochol.

Demaggio, who was not wearing a seatbelt, died of blunt force trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene, King said.

Late afternoon, sun shining into your eyes; I have become very, very sleepy while driving under these conditions. I feel so sorry for Ms. Demaggio and her family.

I'm most sorry that she

I'm most sorry that she wasn't wearing a seatbelt. I met some friends of her's tonight and they were very emotional about the loss.

Wonder

I wonder if anyone pulled out in front of her, turning left from Hamilton Road, caused this accident and just left the scene.
