MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - Two women were killed in a fiery crash with a tractor trailer rig in Colquitt County this morning. Their SUV burst into flames after it was hit by the big rig at the intersection of Highway 202 and Lower Meigs Road.
It was a tragic scene this morning as emergency crews removed debris from a fiery crash that killed two women.
"Around 8:15 this morning we had a blazer come to a stop sign and stop at the intersection of 202 and Lower Meigs Road," said Senior Trooper Bobby Underwood, Georgia State Patrol.
Next to nothing was left of the Red Chevy Blazer troopers say pulled out in front of the semi-tractor trailor. Investigators say the driver of the Blazer didn't see it coming.
"After the collision the Blazer caught on fire and traveled through the ditch area," said Underwood.
The driver of the tractor trailer rig, Wayne Daniels of Doerun didn't want to go on camera.
But says he tried to get the women out of the burning vehicle, thinking one of them could have possibly been alive. He then went in his truck and got a fire extinguisher, attempting to put out the fire while he waited on emergency workers. But it was too much for one person to handle.
"We found two forms of ID inside the SUV. The forms we found were from Moultrie," said Underwood.
The Coroner and the Georgia State Patrol have been working all day trying to identify the women whose bodies were badly burned.
They don't have a positive ID, but say they're 99 percent sure the women were sisters from Moultrie, 24 and 35 years of age. One of them has a 5-year-old child who investigators will likely use for a DNA test.
The driver of the tractor trailer is not charged in the wreck. Feedback
