One dead, 4 injured in one-car accident on I-185

A 19-year-old Cartersville, Ga., woman was killed early today in a one-vehicle accident on Interstate 185 near Pine Mountain, the Georgia State Patrol said.

The name of the victim was not released because her family has not been notified, said Harris County Coroner James Carver. An autopsy will be conducted Friday to determine a cause of death.

Carver said four other occupants were injured when the four-door sedan lost control. All of the injured were transported to The Medical Center in Columbus.

A trooper spokeswoman said the accident occurred about 12:50 a.m. when the southbound vehicle traveled into the median and overturned. Two passengers were ejected from the vehicle, causing one death.

The accident remains under investigation.
