Identities not known for victims of I-20 fatal crash

WARRENTON, Ga. — The Warren County coroner is awaiting forensic identification of two people who died in a car crash on Interstate 20 on Christmas Eve.

Warren County Coroner Paul Lowe said victims of Tuesday’s fatal car crash are believed to be an elderly couple. He said that the bodies will be taken to the GBI Crime Lab in Atlanta on Thursday for identification through DNA samples.

Georgia State Patrol trooper Ahmed Sayad of the Grovetown Post said witnesses said a newer model white Ford Taurus was traveling in the left lane on eastbound I-20 around 5:15 p.m. near the Cadley Road exit when the vehicle ran into the median. The driver overcorrected, crossed over both eastbound lanes of the roadway and crashed into tress, bursting into flames.
