Georgia State Patrol troopers say the log truck lost control while heading north on Highway 93 just south of Cairo around nine o'clock Monday morning.
Troopers say the truck crossed a ditch before slamming into a wooded area near Midway Baptist Church, killing the driver.
Why the truck lost control is yet to be determined.
Late Monday the Georgia State Patrol said they're not releasing the name of the victim because they haven't been able to notify relatives.
