Hopkins County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a fatal single-vehicle collision on Jewell City Road near Weldon Road early Monday morning.
When they arrived they found a Pontiac Grand Prix partially submerged in a pond with a male inside.
Authorities say the preliminary investigation showed the car was traveling east on Jewel City Road when the driver overcorrected and hit a tree on the north side of the roadway.
They say the car then went into the water where it stopped.
Deputies say the driver was pronounced dead at the scene by the Hopkins County Coroner.
