The Newnan Times-Herald

Authorities have identified a Newnan man killed in a car crash Thursday morning.

The crash occurred at 10:30 a.m. in the area of Corinth Road near Blalock Lakes Drive.

The driver of a Toyota Camry was traveling eastbound when he ran off the right side of the road and overcorrected his steering to the left, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

The Camry exited the north shoulder of the road where it struck a ditch, tree and fence as it overturned, troopers said.

Authorities said the driver, identified as Brandon Neely, 35, died at the scene.

Tropers believe speeding, not wearing a seatbelt and failure to maintain lane contributed to the fatal crash.

No one else was involved in the accident, according to the Georgia State Patrol.
