FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. -- A 27-year-old Cumming man died on June 16 after his car ran off of the roadway on

Bentley Road in south Forsyth County.

About 9 a.m., Alexander Robert Hunt, 27, was driving a 1997 Plymouth Breeze eastbound on Bentley Road near Fox Creek Subdivision, said Forsyth County Sheriff Deputy First Class Michael Nelson, traffic specialist unit.

At a curve, Hunt lost control of his car, "the vehicle’s right tires left the roadway," Nelson said.

Hunt attempted to correct the vehicle at which time he over corrected and the vehicle went into the westbound lane, left the roadway and struck a tree.

Hunt was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash remains under investigation by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.
