A 67-year-old Brooks, Ga., man died Monday afternoon when his truck left the highway, went airborne and collided with some trees, the Georgia State Patrol said.
The man, whose name hasn’t been released, was driving east on Ga. 116, just west of Shiloh, Ga., around 12:10 p.m. when he hydroplaned and left the road, Trooper J. Perry said.
“He struck a culvert, which caused him to go airborne,” Perry added. “After going airborne, he struck several trees.”
That sent the Ford truck into a counter-clockwise spin, ejecting the man. He was pronounced dead at the scene, the trooper said.
