A 59-year-old Rentz man died Monday night in an accident on Fountain Road in Laurens County.
Jimmy Lee Mimbs was a passenger in a 1980 Datsun King Cab pickup when the driver lost control in a curve and traveled off the road, said Georgia State Patrol Sgt. Ken DeLoach.
Mimbs was thrown from the vehicle shortly after 8 p.m.
“Of course, the accident is under investigation, but we do believe alcohol was involved,” DeLoach said.
