Man killed in Sumter Co. wreck


The Georgia State Patrol says that Phillip Mathis died this morning just after 1:00 when his truck hit a pecan tree.

Troopers say they are still investigating the single vehicle crash in which Mathis' 2008 Dodge pickup truck ran off Lamar Road, about half a mile north of Highway 280 in Sumter County.

Mathis, 51, was not wearing his seatbelt when he hit the tree.

The coroner released the body to Rainey Funeral Home in Cordele.
