The Aiken branch of the NAACP has planned a press conference for Friday regarding the March 30 vehicle wreck that killed Aiken resident Lukisha Thomas.
The press conference will be held in the Activity Room of the Smith Hazel Recreation Center from 2 to 3 p.m.
The public is invited to attend.
Thomas, 29, died March 30 after police say she was walking with her 2-year-old son and another man, Ray Charles Wooden Jr. on the sidewalk in the 800 block of York Street when they were struck by a 2006 Jeep driven by Thomas G. Woodruff Jr.
Thomas and Wooden were transported by ambulance to Georgia Regents Medical Center, where Thomas died during surgery, authorities said. Thomas' 2-year-old son was taken to Aiken Regional Medical Centers where he was examined and released.
No charges have yet been filed in the incident.
