Grovetown crash kills woman

A Harlem woman was killed Thursday afternoon in a single-vehicle wreck on Wrightsboro Road near Grovetown.

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.
