A 27-year-old Summerville man died Saturday evening following after authorities say he lost control of his 1994 Chevy Silverado truck.
The family of Jared Holt has identified him as the driver killed in the accident. It occurred around 6:30 p.m. Saturday on U.S. 27 South near Doyle Road and the Floyd/Polk county line, says Sgt. Chris Fincher of the Floyd County Police Department (the investigating agency). Says Fincher:
- Holt was speeding south toward Cedartown when his tires dipped off the side of the road.
- The Chattooga County man apparently over corrected, causing the truck to cross the median and begin a barrel roll.
- The truck crossed the opposite lanes of traffic before coming to a stop.
- The police report states speed was a contributing factor in the accident.
