Funeral services will be held Wednesday for a Haralson man who died from injuries sustained in a car accident in Talbot County Friday.

Craig Ethridge, 45, passed away from his injuries after his 2008 Ford SRW Super Duty truck ran off the road around 7:15 p.m. Friday, said Georgia State Patrol Public Information Officer Gordy Wright. While driving southbound around a curve on Georgia Highway 41, Ethridge and was negotiating a downhill curve to the left.

The truck left the roadway on the west edge, and Ethridge overcorrected. The vehicle re-entered the roadway and left the road on the east shoulder, Wright said. The truck traveled up an embankment, struck a power pole and overturned before coming to rest. Ethridge, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle.

A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday in Camp Memorial Park in Fayetteville. On Tuesday, the family will be receiving friends from 6 to 8 p.m. at Mowell Funeral Home in Fayetteville.
