AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - A Pennsylvania woman has died after she was severely burned when the motor home she was traveling in crashed on Interstate 75.

The Macon Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/2q1lJxx ) that Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones says 75-year-old Portia Krehely of Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania, was pronounced dead Sunday afternoon at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta.

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that Portia Krehely’s husband Richard Krehely was driving the recreational vehicle on Friday when he lost control. The vehicle overturned, struck a median and burst into flames. Passers-by had pulled the couple from the wreck.

Jones says Richard Krehely was not injured.
