According to Capt. Jay Baker of the Cherokee Sheriff's Office:
Cherokee Sheriff’s deputies responded to a single vehicle accident Wednesday morning at approximately 5 a.m. on Towne Lake Parkway near Eagle Watch Drive in Woodstock. A Dodge pickup traveling east on Towne Lake Parkway left the road and struck a tree in the raised median. The adult male driver was pronounced dead at the scene.
