Two Children Found Living in Unfit Conditions in Grovetown

An Augusta area woman was killed in a two-vehicle crash last night in the eastbound lanes of I-20 between the Grovetown and Appling exits in Columbia County.

Coroner Vernon Collins says 34-year-old Alicia Quiles died at the scene from blunt force trauma.  Her car crashed into the rear of a tractor-trailer around 7:00 p.m.   Authorities had to shut down both eastbound lanes of traffic while emergency crews were on the scene.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.
