A fatal accident in Monroe County is under investigation.
The call came into the Monroe County Sheriff's Office around 7 p.m. Friday. Deputies responded to Highway 42 South and say 47-year-old Terry Smith of Flovilla was driving a 1960s model Ford Galaxy when the car left the roadway and struck a tree. The vehicle then caught fire with Smith trapped inside.
Smith was extricated and was transported to Atlanta's Grady Hospital by LifeFlight where he was later pronounced dead.
Smith had a suspended driver's license. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the accident.
