A California woman and her daughter have died in a wreck on an interstate highway near the South Carolina-North Carolina state line.

Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler says the wreck happened on Interstate 85 near Blacksburg shortly after 2 a.m. Wednesday.

Fowler says 27-year-old Shawna Geraldine Zamora of Riverbank, Calif., and 9-year-old Lillyana Zamora died at the scene.

The coroner says the woman was driving a sports utility vehicle toward Charlotte, N.C., when it ran off the right side of the road then crossed back into the median and overturned.

He says neither victim was wearing a seat belt and both were thrown from the vehicle.
