CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. -- Clayton County Police are investigating an accident that killed a man and seriously injured a woman.
It happened at around 11:30 p.m. Sunday on southbound Interstate 75 near the ramp to I-85. Clayton County Police Officer Ashanti Marbury said responding crews found a Ford Explorer that left the road, overturned and landed in a wooded area near the highway.
Two people were inside the car. Marbury said the male passenger was pronounced dead at the scene. The female driver suffered extensive injuries to the lower part of her body and was taken to a nearby hospital.
Witnesses said the Explorer was weaving in and out of traffic shortly before the accident. They told police the driver tried to change lanes when she clipped a pickup truck and lost control of her vehicle.
Marbury said charges are pending against the Explorer's driver.
