Woman killed in Guyton wreck

EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - A woman was killed in a wreck near Guyton.

She was rammed by a semi that ran a stop sign at the intersection of Bluejay Road and Midland Road, according to the Effingham County Sheriff's Office. The woman was declared dead at the scene.

"At this point, it just appears that the driver of the white sedan was just doing what she was supposed to do. She was traveling down Midland Road, and unfortunately the semi truck driver failed to stop at the stop sign on Blue Jay road where he collided with the vehicle, basically running over the white sedan," said Effingham County Sheriff's Office spokesman David Ehsanipoor.

Her name has not yet been released pending notification of relatives. The wreck shut down Bluejay at Midland Road for several hours. It reopened early Friday afternoon.
