Dougherty Co. -- A 20 year old Dougherty County man is killed early Tuesday morning in a single car crash.

Yannick Hudson was killed when his 1993 GMC Jimmy crashed into a tree on Hardup Road. His family said Hudson left his home about 7:05 to go to work. A caller reported the wreck about 7:20. Investigators say he veered off the road and hit a mailbox. Then he careened back across the road and hit an oak tree..

 Investigators say Hudson was going faster than the speed limit, and was not wearing a seat belt. They are not sure why his car left the road. Sgt. J.C. Phillips of the Dougherty County Police said "Right now we are not clear on that. We don't know if it was mechanical failure of the vehicle or anything else yet."
