One person is dead and eight other people were injured in an accident on I-75 North Friday morning.

The Georgia State Patrol says it happened around 1 a.m. near mile marker 144.

According to Peach County Coroner Kerry Rooks, the deceased is 30-year-old Leonard Patrick, Jr., of Cordele. Rooks said the man was driving south in a Northbound lane.

But Sergeant Craig Smith of the Georgia State Patrol could not confirm that and said the cause of the accident is still under investigation. He had no information on the condition of the other eight people.

According to the Georgia State Patrol, Patrick, who was driving a G6, drove his vehicle into the path of a 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe and a Mercury Montego. Patrick was ejected from the vehicle and landed in the left lane of I-75, according to the GSP.
