A Griffin man died Tuesday after his car ran off the road on Ga. Highway 92 south in Woolsey, according to the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office.
John M. Fulop, 63, was driving south on Hwy. 92 in his 1994 BMW 325i when the crash occurred just after 1 p.m. Tuesday, officials said. He was traveling by himself, deputies said.
According to the investigation, Fulop’s vehicle was approaching a curve on the highway but for an unknown reason it continued on a straight path, leaving the roadway.
The vehicle struck a telephone pole and a tree before coming to rest, deputies said, noting that Fulop was wearing his seat belt at the time.
Fulop sustained serious injuries and was transported to Atlanta Medical Center by Fayette County Paramedics. He was later pronounced dead, officials said.
The collision is being investigated by the Traffic Enforcement Section of the sheriff’s office to fully determine the cause of the crash and Fulop’s death.
This is the second fatal motor vehicle crash in unincorporated Fayette County this year.
