A Gainesville woman was killed in a one-vehicle wreck in North Hall County late Saturday night.

Kaitlin McEachin Pierce, 26, was traveling north on Yellow Creek Road, which juts off Thompson Bridge Road/Ga. 60 in Murrayville, at the time of the 11:34 p.m. wreck, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

Pierce was going around a curve when the vehicle went off the shoulder of the road and struck a mailbox, the GSP said.

The vehicle continued to travel north on the east shoulder and crossed a private driveway. It then went down an embankment and struck a tree.

The vehicle then spun around and came to rest on the east shoulder facing east.

Pierce was pronounced dead at Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville, the GSP said.
