(WRDW/WAGT) -- A 21-year-old woman was killed in a crash on I-20 Wednesday.

There were two crashes on I-20 causing some backups, but all lanes are now back open.

The deadly crash happened on I-20 westbound at mile marker 14, in Aiken County. 21-year-old Leeanna Windnagle died on the scene.

The Aiken County Coroner's Office says a rear tire blew out, causing the driver to lose control and run off the road, into a tree.

Several other people in the van were taken to hospitals in Augusta, and one of them is in critical condition.

There was also a second crash on the eastbound side, but no one was injured.
