A man died after a single-car traffic accident Wednesday morning on Interstate 75 South at Mercer University Drive, Macon police said.
Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones said 62-year-old Clyde Matkin, of Eatonton, was pronounced dead at The Medical Center of Central Georgia shortly after 11 a.m.
“An autopsy will be done to determine why this man drove off the road and died,” Jones said. “His wife just died about two months ago.”
It does not appear Matkin suffered fatal injuries directly related to the wreck, Jones said.
The accident remains under investigation.
