One person was found dead and trapped inside a vehicle Tuesday at Gillsville and Diamond Hill roads in Maysville, according to authorities.
Maysville Fire and Rescue responded with Jackson County EMS around 2:14 p.m. Tuesday.
Georgia State Patrol said a driver was passing by and saw a car over an embankment. The driver then flagged down a trooper, who walked down the embankment.
“Upon arrival, they found a single-vehicle accident with one patient trapped inside,” Jackson County EMS director Steve Nichols wrote in a news release. “It was determined that the patient was deceased on arrival of our units.”
Rescue personnel extricated the victim, and no other injuries were reported.
“It is unknown how long the driver had been there or when this crash occurred,” state patrol said.
The deceased person’s identity has not been released by authorities.
