A 24-year-old Mableton man was killed Saturday morning after his car struck a tree and he was ejected.

Police said Jony S. Hernandez-Funes was driving a black 2003 Audi TT south on Hicks Road, north of the East-West Connector in South Cobb.

After failing to negotiate a left turn, the car exited the road on the right side and hit several mailboxes. It then crossed back onto the road and exited the road from the left side, crossing the curb and sidewalk before striking a large tree and coming to rest upside-down, according to police.

Hernandez-Funes was pronounced dead at the scene. Next of kin has been notified.
