Car Wreck Kills One

A Savannah woman was killed in a two-car collision in west Chatham County Saturday evening. About 7pm, a Saab was being driven on Chevis Road by 48-year-old Cathy Aboutawila. Her car was hit by a Cutlass Supreme driven by 18-year-old Travis Weston at the intersection with Beaufort Road. The impact caused the Saab to spin into a ditch.

Aboutawila had five children, including her two daughters, in the car with her, ranging in ages between 12 and 14. Police say none of the people in the accident were wearing seatbelts.

The children and both drivers were taken to Memorial Health where Aboutawila was pronounced dead. Chatham County police are still looking into the cause of the accident.
