A man and woman from our area were among the five killed in a fiery crash outside Savannah, Georgia, Tuesday morning.  

The Georgia State Patrol released their preliminary report late Wednesday. 

The crash began when a tractor trailer slammed into a truck, and caused a chain reaction in a construction zone on I-16.

Among the victims is, 71-year-old Jerry Earnest of Varnell and 72-year-old Glenda Adams of Cohutta, Georgia.

Earnest and Adams were in the car that caught fire.

Charges are pending the completion of that investigation.
