An Augusta woman was killed in a two-car crash downtown Friday night.
Augusta-Richmond County Coroner Mark Bowen said Mary Ann Lacek, 69, was killed when the 2005 Isuzu Rodeo she was driving was hit by a vehicle at the intersection of 11th Street and Walton Way. Bowen says Lacek was traveling west through the intersection on Walton Way and struck in the driver’s side door by the vehicle traveling north on 11th Street. She was extricated by emergency responders and taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.
Lacek’s body will be sent to the GBI crime lab in Atlanta for an autopsy. The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office is continuing the investigation.
