ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - A woman died after a fatal car accident involving two tractor-trailers Thursday on Liberty Expressway, according to the Albany Police Department (APD).

As the vehicle lost control, it turned counterclockwise and was hit by an 18-wheeler and then struck by another 18-wheeler. The vehicle then crossed back over the median where the vehicle came to a rest.

The victim has been identified as Shayartta Ashberry, 36, of Dawson. Police said Ashberry died from fatal injuries.

Both tractor-trailer drivers are alert and stable and didn’t have major injuries, said police.
