Two Irwinton women were killed Tuesday when they were ejected from a vehicle that flipped multiple times near Toomsboro in Wilkinson County.
A 43-year-old Irwinton man was driving a Lincoln Navigator about 7:30 p.m., headed south on Poplar Springs Church Road near its intersection with Ga. 112, said Georgia State Patrol Cpl. David Bryant.
The vehicle veered off the road while its driver negotiated a curve. It overturned several times, Bryant said.
The driver and his front-seat passenger were wearing seatbelts, he said.

The cause of the crash was still being investigated late Wednesday afternoon.
