Woman dies in wet road wreck

Worth County, GA (WALB) - Troopers say 32-year-old Nicole Temples lost control of her car on a wet road Monday night.

State troopers say it's a tragic reminder for us to slow down and drive carefully when the weather is bad.

Troopers say Temples was heading north on Peafowl Road in Worth County, that's just north of Acree. She lost control when she hit a sharp turn.

The Mitsubishi Galant flipped several times, hit a light pole, and came to rest in front of a home.

The driver was ejected and died at the scene. Troopers say speed was a factor in the wreck.

"This is a perfect example of what can happen when you get in too big of a hurry, especially when you have water over the roadway and you're unfamiliar with the road conditions," Cpl. Scott McClure Georgia State Patrol. "This is what happens when you don't pay attention and don't slow down sometimes." 

The car had a Lee County tag.
