Lee County-- An apparent drowsy driver caused a crash Monday morning that killed her, and injured six people, including four children.

State troopers say 18-year-old Keyana Jones of South Carolina likely fell asleep on Highway 32 near Philema Road just before 2:00 AM.

The GMC Suburban hit a sign post and tumbled into a ditch. Jones was thrown from the vehicle and killed. Five others were also ejected. No one inside was wearing a seatbelt.

Eight-year-old Darrious Towns climbed to the road, flagging down help. Three other children, ages 4, 5, and 7 were also in the car. Four-year-old Akasia Graham was taken to Phoebe Putney Hospital with injuries, and is listed in fair condition.

Twenty-one-year-old Yolanda Butler and 27-year-old Karanda Alexander are both listed in critical condition. Patrol officers say the group was visiting family in Southwest Georgia.
