IRWIN CO., GA (WALB) -

One person is dead after being ejected from their vehicle in a crash Wednesday night near the Irwin, Ben Hill County line. 

Georgia state patrol says around 6:40 p.m. the driver of a 2002 GMC Sierra was taking a right curve on Frank Rd, before losing control of the vehicle and slamming into several trees. The driver was then ejected from the vehicle and died on scene.

GSP is investigating the cause of the crash and working to determine if there were any passengers in the vehicle at the time of the crash.

The name of the driver is expected to be released later Thursday, once family is notified.
