Four Killed in I-16 Pile-up
Wednesday, 06 February 2013

February 6--  Four people died in the Wednesday morning pile-up on Interstate 16 near the county line between Laurens and Bleckley Counties.

ImageThose killed are Clayton and Josephine Warnock of Dublin, Jeff Moore of Effingham County and Michael Smith of Covington.  Nine people were injured.

Officials say the wreckage of seven tractor-trailers and 20 other vehicles covered a half-mile stretch of the Interstate.  Two of the semi's caught fire and several other vehicles were also in flames.

Apparently a combination of smoke from a nearby controlled burn and patchy fog reduced visibility and led to the chain reaction collisions.
