Woman dies in fiery Christmas Day crash on Interstate 16

A 58-year-old Warner Robins woman died Christmas afternoon when her car crashed off Interstate 16.

The Kia overturned, became engulfed in flames and came to rest upside down, facing east, off the highway near mile post 48 in Laurens County.

McDaniel died at the scene.
