The Hall County Sheriff’s Department has released the name of the man who was killed when his pickup hit a downed tree on Airport Road early Wednesday morning.
Chief Deputy Jim Castleberry said the victim is Dennis Wells, 55, of Cairo.
Castleberry said the Sheriff’s Department received the call at about 3:36 a.m. on Wednesday.
He said that the storm had knocked a tree across the road and it was arched in a way that Wells was unable to see it until the last second and he drove into the tree.
This accident was the only one reported due to damage from the storms.
