ECHOLS CO., GA (WALB) - Georgia State Patrol responded to a wreck on GA Highway 135 in Echols County.

A mid-size car, driven by 28-year-old Kendrick Demetrius Spencer of Lake Park, GA was traveling south on the highway.

Spencer attempted to miss a curve, causing the vehicle to travel off the east shoulder of the road and make impact with a dirt embankment on the passenger side.

The vehicle then overturned into a water-filled ditch and came to a rest, partially submerged on its top.

Spencer was pronounced deceased on the scene.

He was restrained and airbags did deploy in the vehicle.

Troopers suspect alcohol to be a contributing factor in the wreck, but will be pending a toxicology report.
