The Georgia State Patrol has confirmed two fatalities in a wreck on Cartersville Highway just across the Floyd-Bartow County line on Monday afternoon.

According to a statement from the GSP:

Ronald Jackson, 56, of Cartersville, was driving a 2005 Jeep Cherokee eastbound on the four-lane near Alford Road when the vehicle veered into the left lane. Jackson over-corrected causing the Jeep to go off the south shoulder of the highway. The vehicle spun around and flipped several times before it struck a tree.

Jackson and a passenger, 22-year-old Bryeisha Hall of Chattanooga, were both pronounced dead on the scene.
