Joey Carter, 35, of Loganville, died early Friday morning from injuries suffered from a single-car accident Sept. 1.
According to Gordy Wright, public information officer for the Georgia State Patrol, the crash took place at about 2 a.m. on Highway 20, a tenth of a mile south of Centerville-Rosebud Road. Carter was driving a 199 Ford F150 southbound on the highway when the vehicle reportedly crossed the centerline and continued into a ditch on the east shoulder of the road. The vehicle then hit a culvert and flipped "several times," according to the report. Carter was reportedly not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle. Wright said alcohol is "suspected" as a contributing factor to the wreck.
