Florida woman killed in I-75 crash in Houston County

A Florida woman was killed Wednesday afternoon in a single-car crash on Interstate 75 in Houston County, authorities said.

Joyce Carman, 71, of Zephyrhills, Fla., died from injuries sustained in the wreck, said Houston County Coroner Danny Galpin.

She was traveling north on I-75 when her car ran off the road near mile marker 133, went down an embankment and struck a tree, Georgia State Patrol trooper Brian Abney said.

The crash happened about 1:30 p.m., he said.

No other vehicles were involved, Abney said.

The motorist traveling behind Carman saw her veer off the road and called authorities, Abney said.
