A 26-year-old man died shortly after midnight on New Year's Day in Whitfield County, officials said.

Justin Lamar Terry was traveling east on Houston Valley Road at 12:08 a.m. Thursday when he overcorrected, lost control of his vehicle and left the road, according a dispatcher with the Georgia State Patrol.

Mr. Terry's car hit two trees before overturning, and he was pronounced dead on the scene, the dispatcher said.

There were no other passengers in the vehicle and no other cars involved in the wreck.

Alcohol was not a factor in the wreck, the dispatcher said.
