Two Riverdale sisters die in traffic crash



Two Riverdale sisters were killed Jan. 30 in a single-vehicle accident along Banks Road near Fayetteville after the vehicle left the roadway and struck a tree.

Sheriff Barry Babb said the traffic accident claimed the lives of sisters Tonieadra S. Boyce, 23, and Tierra Boyce, 17, both of Riverdale.

Babb said the vehicle driven by Tonieadra Boyce was travelling eastbound on Banks Road near Vaughn Drive at approximately 8:20 a.m. when Boyce appeared to have lost control and over-corrected. The vehicle crossed into the westbound lane, left the roadway and struck a tree, Babb said.

The sisters died at the scene, said Babb.

An investigation into the cause of the accident is underway, Babb said.
