The Georgia State Patrol says a person was killed by a falling tree in Carroll County on Thursday.
The GSP says the accident happened about 9:45 a.m. on Highway 113 between Spinks Road and Hickory Level Road. The tree fell across the road into the front seat of a 1987 Thunderbird, killing 62-year-old Harry Thomas White, according to the GSP.
Tammy Elam said that White was a friendly neighbor on Sage Street in Temple, and he was often seen with his dog.
"He seemed to be a nice gentleman. He would ride up and down the road and just wave at the kids. His little dog would sit and ride on his mirror. We just thought he was so sweet. Then we had gotten the news he passed away today," Elam said.
