BIG CABIN, Okla. -- The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a Georgia man died after his car veered off the Will Rogers Turnpike and landed in a pond.

Troopers say 82-year-old Carl McElhaney of Dacula was driving east on the turnpike in Craig County when the crash happened Saturday. Authorities say McElhaney's car left the road, crashed through a fence and went airborne after driving up an embankment.

The car eventually landed upside down in a pond. Four people who witnessed the crash helped pull McElhaney from his car.

McElhaney was taken to a Tulsa hospital where he later died. Authorities are investigating why his car drove off the road.
