THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Two people were killed in two separate crashes Friday night in Decatur and Colquitt Counties.

Twenty-seven year old Casey Lewis of Moultrie was killed when he and his passenger were thrown from his SUV as it flipped several times just before 11:00 PM on Tillman Road just south of Highway 37 in western Colquitt County.

State troopers say Lewis ran off the road going around a curve. Twenty-eight year old Matthew Sammons was injured in the crash. In Decatur County, a woman is charged with DUI in a crash that killed her brother.

Forty-one year-old Carroll Givens was killed when Merry Turner ran off East River Road and crashed into a tree. Turner suffered minor injuries, but Givens was trapped in the vehicle and had to be cut out. He died at the hospital.
