A Dacula man died of injuries sustained after his car struck a tree after being struck from behind on Dee Kennedy Road.
Jakob Riley Martin, 20, of Dacula, was driving southbound on Dee Kennedy Road near Emperor Lane around 4:20 p.m. when his Ford Focus was hit from behind by a Ford F-150, causing both drivers to lose control of their vehicles.
Martin's vehicle struck a tree after leaving the roadway. He was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center, where he died.
The driver of the F-150, Timothy Lee Williams, 55, of Winder, was taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Braselton with non-life-threatening injuries.
