ATLANTA — A man who died after driving in southwest Atlanta and striking a concrete pillar has been identified.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office identified the man as 40-year-old Demario Swint.
He was the only victim of a single-vehicle wreck Saturday night, according to the Atlanta Police Department.
Officers were called around 11:45 p.m. to investigate the circumstances of the crash by Lee Street and Tucker Avenue. That's where police found Swint trapped in a vehicle and, according to officers, he was not breathing. The driver was deemed dead at the crash site.
Initial evidence shows the vehicle left the roadway at a high rate of speed and struck a large concrete pillar that supports MARTA tracks, according to APD.
Investigators with the accident investigations unit are looking into the circumstances of the crash.
