An Adairsville man was killed in a wreck on I-75 near mile marker 296, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

A 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Classic driven by Frederick Tyrone Barrett, age 40, from Adairsville, left the travel lane in a curve.  

The vehicle hit a guardrail, spun across the travel lanes, traveled off the shoulder, and struck a tree on the driver's side.  Barrett died at the scene.  

Barrett was using his seatbelt and alcohol is suspected as a contributing factor.
