WHITFIELD COUNTY, GA (WRCB) -

A driver on Interstate 75 was killed Wednesday morning when the car left the road and struck a tree.

The Georgia State Patrol says the beige Mazda M6 was traveling southbound on I-75 about 5:00am in the left lane, when the driver lost control of the vehicle. 

The vehicle left the right side shoulder, going into a ditch and then overturning before striking the tree, near mile marker 330 in Whitfield County. 

GSP says the vehicle came to a final uncontrolled rest on its top, upside down. 

The driver was deceased at the scene. A passenger was transported to Hamilton Medical Center. The passenger has not been identified at this time.
 
GSP will release the name of the driver once family members have been notified.
