Two people were killed on Interstate 75 northbound in Monroe County this weekend.

Allison Willis, public information officer for the Monroe County sheriff's office, says it happened around 5 a.m. Sunday near the Pate Road overpass.

She says Eddrick Goddard, 20, lost control of a Ford Crown Victoria after a tire blew. The car hit the guardrail and flipped several times.

All four people in the car were ejected.

Willis says Reginald Patterson Jr., 20, and Jarvis Dumas, 22, died in the wreck.

Goddard and Shavar Traylor, 30, were taken to the Medical Center of Central Georgia with non-life threatening injuries.

Willis says seat belts were not in use at the time of the wreck.
