CANTON, Ga. — Sheriff's officials in northwest Georgia say a man accused in a carjacking has crashed the stolen vehicle and died.

The driver of the car was pronounced dead on the scene. The man's identity has not been released. Police say they believe a second carjacker fled the scene on foot and a third was taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital for head injuries.
