An 18-year-old girl is dead following a single-vehicle wreck.

About 3 a.m. Wednesday, the Chattooga County Sheriff's Office responded to a wreck on Spring Creek Road outside Trion.

The vehicle was traveling south when the driver, Gordon Kinsey, of Trion, lost control and the vehicle went up an embankment before hitting a tree, said Chattooga County Sheriff Mark Schrader.

Taylor Sipes, 18, was partially thrown from the vehicle and later died at Floyd Medical Center. A second passenger, Kody Jacome, had superficial injuries.

Kinsey has been charged with driving under the influence, vehicular homicide and several misdemeanors.
