ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Almost two dozen people have died on Georgia highways so far this holiday weekend. And there are still six more hours to go.

22 people have been killed and 776 people have been injured since 6:00 PM Wednesday evening. Georgia state patrol originally estimated 19 people would die.

Troopers say drivers need to wear seat belts and drive drive carefully. This is especially true Sunday during what is expected to be the busiest travel day as people head home from the holidays.

The 102-travel period will end Sunday at midnight. One of those casualties was a woman in Stewart County. 56-year-old Janice Powell was killed in a two car accident at 6:40 PM Saturday evening.

That accident happened on Georgia Highway 27, just West of Richland. There were no other injuries in this wreck. The SKIRT Team is investigating this accident.
