Two Dead in I-95 Crash

Port Wentworth Police say two people were killed on I-95 when their sport utility vehicle flipped over. It happened around two o'clock near Highway 21.

Officers say 33 year old Lisa Marie Dross-Sierra and her family were moving from Brooklyn, New York to their new home in Orlando when Dross-Sierra swerved to avoid a tire in the road. She ended up running off the road, rolling the SUV over several times and hitting a tree. Police say Dross-Sierra was the only one in the car wearing a seatbelt. Her husband and two children were not. All three of them were thrown out of the car. Thirty-four year old Noel Sierra and the couple's eleven year old daughter were both killed in the accident. Dross-Sierra was rushed to the hospital by ambulance. Her 14 year old child was taken by Life Star helicopter. Both were still in surgery as of Sunday night.

Port Wentworth Police do not believe excessive speed or alcohol were factors in the accident.
