Gordy Wright, spokesman for the Georgia State Patrol, said Cortney Jade King was driving her 2004 Volkswagen New Beetle eastbound on Highway 108/Fincher Road near Ammons Road around 1:35 p.m. when the car ran off the road.
“The driver over-corrected, left the road and hit several trees,” Wright said.
King was unrestrained and died in the crash. Her niece, 5-year-old Alexis King, was properly restrained in a booster seat and survived the accident.
The child sustained cuts to her hands and arm and was transported to Northside Hospital-Cherokee for treatment, Wright said.
Wright said alcohol is not suspected as a factor in the crash and GSP has not yet determined the cause of the accident.
Funeral services were Tuesday for King at the Chapel of South Canton Funeral Home.
