DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -- A man is dead after his vehicle hit a tree on Gravel Hill Road near Nelms Road in Dougherty County, according to Coroner Michael Fowler.

Fowler said officials are working to notify next-of-kin after an "older" gentleman died when his vehicle left the road and hit a tree Monday afternoon.

According to Fowler, no one else was in the vehicle when the accident happened.

Fowler said it is not clear at this time if the man had any previous medical conditions. He died from blunt force trauma, Fowler said.
