One dead following single vehicle crash near Canton

Fulton County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a call of a one vehicle accident north of Canton city limits around 1:40 Thursday afternoon where a 68-year-old man was pronounced dead.

According to a release from the Sheriff’s Department, Robert Farrar of Canton had been traveling south on 11th Avenue.
