A Newnan man died in a head-on collision on Highway 5 at the Dog River bridge in Douglasville Friday evening.
The accident occurred around 6 p.m., and Highway 5 was closed in both directions for a time, with Douglas County sheriff’s deputies directing traffic around the accident.
A silver Chevrolet Venture was traveling south on Highway 5, according to the Georgia State Patrol. The State Patrol said the Venture crossed the centerline of the roadway and struck a northbound red Ford F-250 head-on. Both vehicles rotated and came to final rest, with the F-250 overturned.
The driver of the Venture, Mark Logan of Newnan, Georgia, died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash, the State Patrol said.
