A wreck this afternoon on US 27 at the intersection of Dugdown Road resulted in a fatality, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

According to Polk County Deputy Coroner Tony Brazier, 80-year-old Frank Carter of a Cedartown address was pronounced dead on the scene.

The GSP said Carter, driving a 1998 Toyota Avalon, pulled out in front of a northbound logging truck. The log truck hit the driver's side of the Avalon and then overturned on the car, spilling its load out onto the highway.

The truck driver, identified by the Georgia State Patrol as 44-year-old Danny Lamar Tucker of LaGrange was treated on the scene and transported to Floyd Medical Center.

No charges will be filed, said GSP public information officer Gordy Wright.
