Randy Tallon, 50, was killed in an accident on southbound Interstate 75 near the Connector 3 exit early Saturday in Dalton, Ga., according to police.
Georgia State Patrol and Dalton police said they received the call at 4:36 a.m. and learned that a white Chevrolet Silverado Z71 with a license plate from Ontario, Canada, was rear ended by a black GMC Envoy.
The Silverado lost control and flipped several times before coming to a stop, officers said. Mr. Tallon was a passenger in the Silverado and the driver, Allison Gaudino, was airlifted by Life Force helicopter to Erlanger hospital.
Officials say the driver of the Envoy, 25-year-old Keenan James Broussard, was charged with driving while intoxicated and is being held in the Whitfield County Jail.
