A man recently died following a single-vehicle wreck in West Jackson.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office was called for the wreck with injuries and possible ejection June 16 on Hwy. 124.

When officers arrived, they saw two males sitting on the side of the road. A third man, Jharion Syone Spencer, 20, of Covington, was lying in a ditch.

EMS and Fire crews were performing CPR on Spencer, who had been ejected from the vehicle. He was taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center where he died from his injuries.

A passenger was also transported for lacerations on his head and neck. A juvenile passenger didn't want to be transported and was picked up by a family member.

The two passengers were wearing seatbelts, but Spencer wasn't. They said Spencer had tried to avoid a collision with a trash can and lost control of the vehicle.

The Georgia State Patrol was called to work the accident. Driver impairment is suspected, according to the GSP.
