FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A 33-year-old is dead after he drove off the roadway and struck a power pole, deputies said.
Robert Meyer, of Dacula, was driving in his pick-up truck by Chattahoochee Road, west of Shady Grove Road Friday, when he failed to negotiate a turn, according to authorities.
The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office and fire department were dispatched to the area just before 10:30 p.m. after Meyer's 2007 Chevrolet Silverado left the roadway and crashed into a power pole. No other vehicles were involved, deputies said.
"Speed appears to be a factor in the crash," according to the sheriff's office. Its traffic investigations unit is looking into the crash.
