Georgia man charged with homicide in 2017 car collision in North Augusta
A Georgia man was charged Monday in connection with a single-vehicle collision that occurred on Old Sudlow Lake Road in North Augusta in 2017, which left two individuals dead.
Khalil Alexander Stiger, 22, of Hawksmoor Way in Grovetown, Georgia, is charged with two counts of homicide/reckless homicide, according to jail records.
On Nov. 22, 2017, officers with the North Augusta Department of Public Safety responded around 6 a.m. to Old Sudlow Lake Road near Summer Lane in North Augusta in reference to a single-vehicle collision with a tree, according to the report.
First responders were able to recover three victims, two men and a woman, from the vehicle – this included Stiger who was in the driver’s seat.
Stiger and 23-year-old Norris L. Scott, of Grovetown, were both taken to Augusta University Medical Center for treatment, while 20-year-old Kayleigh M. Daniels, of North Augusta, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton.
Scott was pronounced dead at the hospital a short time later, while Stiger remained in “critical condition,” Carlton said.
Scott and Daniels died from multiple body trauma.
Their vehicle was traveling north near the 300 block of Old Sudlow Lake Road around 5:50 a.m., when Stiger lost control of the vehicle, left the roadway and struck a tree.
The vehicle flipped and landed with the roof against the tree.
Investigators searched the area around the wreck and located a Bud Light beer can and needle, according to police.
Several small clear bags were also found at the scene, which appeared to have methamphetamine residue inside.
Stiger recovered from his injuries and was charged Monday. He was taken to the Aiken County detention center, where he was still being held Tuesday afternoon.
