ATLANTA -- A driver died after crashing a vehicle in Fulton County Monday morning.
The accident happened at around 4:15 a.m. in the 4000 block of Wendell Drive, just south of Charlie Brown Field.
Fulton County Police Det. Melissa Parker said the 26-year-old driver was the only person inside the car, a Pontiac Grand Prix. The driver lost control of the vehicle near Wendell Court and hit a tree.
Responding crews found the driver entrapped and unresponsive in the car, which had caught fire. The victim was freed and taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. Parker said the driver was later pronounced dead at Grady. The person's identity has not been released.
The crash also caused a water pipe or water main to break, according to Parker.
