Tift County -- Georgia State Troopers are hesitant to release the names of the four victims who's bodies were badly burned in the multi-car accident in Tift County Saturday Morning.

The victims' families are still being notified. The massive crash happen around 9:30 Saturday on I-75 South. Troopers say 40 year-old Lewis Armentrout plowed his Onyx Trash truck through about dozen cars that were stopped on the interstate.

Four of the cars burst into flames. Investigators aren't sure why Armentrout didn't stop, but say fog may have prevented him from seeing the stopped traffic.

Nine people were brought to the hospital with injures all but two of them were released. Armentrout is being treated for burns on 25 percent of his body at a burn center in Augusta.
