TERRELL COUNTY, GA (WALB) –Troopers say it's a dangerous reminder of why you need to drive cautiously in bad weather.
21-year-old Robert Fountain, Jr. was heading East on Highway 82 in Terrell County Wednesday afternoon when he lost control of his pickup truck on the wet road.
Half of the pickup ended up in some water about a mile outside of Sasser. Fountain jumped out of the vehicle as it slid off the road because he was afraid it was going to crash into a tree.
State troopers blame the crash on the weather and distracted driving.
"What happened here today is the guy looked down at his cell phone. His cell phone went off and he took his eyes off the road. With the roads being wet, he was unable to control it and ended up in a ditch," said Senior Trooper Garry Greene with Georgia State Patrol.
Troopers say drivers should have lights on, slow down and stay off those cell phones. Fountain hurt his back jumping out of the vehicle but he wasn't seriously injured. Troopers say he could face charges.
