ADEL — A Valdosta man died early this week in a fatal wreck in Cook County, the Georgia State Patrol said Thursday.
A tractor-trailer was heading north on Interstate 75 at about 12:45 a.m. Monday, April 5, when it went off the road and struck a fence about one mile south of the Old Quitman Road intersection, the state patrol said in a report.
The trailer overturned and hit a tree; the truck stopped in the wood line.
EMTs pronounced the driver, Kendrick Andre Patrick, 48, of Valdosta, dead at the scene, the patrol said.
