An Athens man died in a single-vehicle accident on Foote McClellan Road around 3:45 p.m. Nov. 13.
Jeffrey Green, 23, died when he lost control of his east-bound vehicle, left the roadway and overturned, with the vehicle striking a tree, according to J.T. Shirah of the Georgia State Patrol.
“Speed was a factor,” said Shirah.
Madison County coroner Julie Phillips said Green died on impact. A passenger in the vehicle was also transported to an Athens hospital with serious head injuries. Shirah said Green was not wearing a seatbelt.
