Authorities said the crash happened Sunday afternoon on a county road south of Blue in Bryan County. A preliminary report said 28-year-old Clyde Powell was driving an SUV carrying six passengers when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a fence and a tree.
Authorities said Powell and all six passengers were ejected from the vehicle.
