Detectives from the Montgomery County Police Collision Reconstruction Unit (CRU) are investigating a single-vehicle fatal collision that occurred last night in Barnesville.
On June 17th, at approximately 9:18 p.m., 5th District officers and Fire/Rescue personnel responded to the 23500 block of Mt. Ephraim Road in Dickerson for a personal injury collision involving a passenger vehicle.
The preliminary investigation revealed that a white, unconfirmed model year Toyota Camry was traveling northbound on Mt. Ephraim Road. For unknown reasons, the driver of the vehicle lost control, and the vehicle slid sideways, left the roadway, and struck a power pole. The driver was ejected from the vehicle at some point during the collision. As a result of the collision, wires fell from the power pole causing the vehicle to become engulfed in fire. The driver was pronounced deceased at the scene of the collision.
