Carrollton Man Killed In Single Car Crash

State troopers say a Carrollton man was killed over the weekend, when the vehicle he was driving struck an embankment and overturned several times before striking a tree.
The GA State Patrol Public Information Office reports the accident happened after 5:00 Saturday afternoon in Carrollton.
The report states that a 1995 Honda Accord driven by 43-year old Edward Jerome Saffo was eastbound on Lovvorn Road when it passed several vehicles in a no-passing zone.  As it completed the passing and returned to the eastbound lane, the vehicle left the roadway on the south shoulder.
Saffo was fatally injured. The car’s 26-year old female passenger (from Tallapoosa) was airlifted to Atlanta Medical Center for treatment.
