2 people killed in wreck on Interstate 95 in Liberty County

LIBERTY CO., GA (WTOC) -

Two people have been killed in a wreck on northbound Interstate 95 near mile marker 72 in Liberty County on Monday. 

The female victim in Monday's double fatality has been identified as Maria Montagno, 48, of Pennsylvania. The 38-year-old male victim’s name has not been released because authorities are unable to find family members according to Trooper Carl Hutchinson.

Hutchinson said speed played a factor in the accident. 

Montagno, who was driving a 2003 Mazda Tribute, came up quickly on a family of 2 adults and 3 children riding in a 2004 Honda Odyssey. 

Montagno attempted to avoid hitting the van and lost control of her vehicle striking the Odyssey on the left side and causing her Mazda to flip several times.

The male who was not wearing a seatbelt was ejected. 

Montagno, who was wearing a seat belt, died in the vehicle.
