Marietta mother, son, killed in fiery Florida wreck

A Marietta woman and her 15-year-old son were killed Saturday in a fiery interstate crash in northeast Florida that also killed an Alpharetta man riding in the vehicle.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 45-year-old Robert Myers of Marietta was driving a Ford Bronco on I-10 in Baker County Saturday afternoon when the sport utility vehicle began swerving erratically.

The SUV went off the roadway and struck a tree, catching fire.

Myers and his three passengers were all ejected from the Bronco. Myers was seriously injured and was taken to a Jacksonville hospital.

His three passengers were all pronounced dead at the scene.

Two of the victim have been identified as Pamela Myers, 48, and Michael Myers, 15, both of Marietta.

Authorities have not released the name of the third passenger, but WJXT-TV in Jacksonville identified him as James Burch, 44, of Alpharetta.

The Georgia State Patrol reported Monday that nine people died in wrecks across Georgia over the Christmas holiday counting period, which began at 6 p.m. Thursday and ended at midnight Sunday.
