After losing control, the vehicle traveled off Greison Trail, flipped over and landed in a small creek 


A single vehicle accident in Newnan Tuesday caused a vehicle to travel off the road and land upside down in a creek.

The driver was traveling northbound on Greison Trail when the vehicle began to drift off the right side of the road, said Officer Brent McComas with the Newnan Police Department. The driver then overcorrected, causing the vehicle to travel off the other side of the road and overturn.

The vehicle then landed on its roof in a creek off the road. The identity and condition of the driver were not available from authorities Wednesday.
