A Morehead City man and his friend from Wake Forest were killed in Georgia while on their way to a fishing tournament in Mississippi.
In all three people were killed in two accidents Monday morning on I-20, west of Augusta. Robert Lawson of Morehead City and Paul Wood, Jr. were killed when the boat they were towing crushed their truck after it struck a tractor trailer.
Our sister station, WRDW in Augusta says the first accident happened when authorities say a driver struck a deer, leading to a traffic back-up and the second crash a mile down the interstate. An eight mile stretch of the interstate was shut down because of hazardous chemicals which leaked from the tractor trailer.
