Police do not know why Daggett crossed the double yellow line, but they believe that excessive speed played a role.
The driver of the car, 30-year-old William Hill of Hiram, was not hurt, but his passenger, 24-year-old Chandra Keyon of Marietta, was taken to nearby with injuries that were not life-threatening.
Investigators do not expect to file charges in the death, Pierce said. But police ask anyone with information about what happened to call 770-499-3987.
