A man was killed Sunday afternoon in a single-vehicle accident on Ga. Hwy. 16 West, just east of Plant Yates.

The middle-aged man and three members of his family were traveling in a van that left the roadway and rolled over, trapping two of the occupants.

Emergency crews had to use chainsaws to clear trees before they could get to the vehicle, and crews had to stabilize the van and cut the roof off to extricate two of the passengers. The other two were able to crawl out on their own.

Two of the occupants were taken by air ambulance to Atlanta Medical Center and the third was transported by ground ambulance. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
