Posted: Updated:

Early Tuesday morning, a man complaining of chest pains called 911 and told Dalton police he was trying to drive himself to the Hamilton Medical Center. He was alerting them to be on the lookout for his car.

At about 5 a.m., a witness called saying they saw a red Honda Civic drive off North Dalton Bypass near Vista Drive and crash into a tree.

The witness said the driver did not try to hit the brakes or turn back onto the road before the accident.

When police arrived, they found the man had been killed. They believe he suffered some sort of medical emergency that lead to the accident.

Police continue to investigate.
