GSP releases name of second grader killed in wreck

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A second grader was killed in a car crash on his way to school, Monday morning about 7:20, on U.S. 82 between Sasser and Dawson.

The Georgia State Patrol said today that the child is identified as Jamaree Lewis, 8, of Dawson.
    
A trooper says 72-year-old Jessica Moore was driving east when she ran slightly off the road.

She over-corrected, and her minivan went into a tailspin, clipping another van traveling in the opposite direction. Her 8-year-old grandson was unbuckled, and was ejected from the vehicle.

Jamaree was a student at Sherwood Acres, and grief counselors will be available today at the school for students and faculty.
