A Millen woman was killed on a Burke County Roadway last week.

Amanda Young, 51, was killed around 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22, when she was struck by an oncoming vehicle while walking on the Savannah River Parkway just north of the Jenkins County line.

According to officers at the scene, the Bulloch County woman who was behind the wheel said she saw Young in her headlights but couldn’t stop in time. Young died on impact from blunt force multi-system trauma, Burke County Coroner Susan Salemi said.

She was the sister of Jenkins County Coroner Henry Young.
