A Rockdale County man was killed in an accident in Monroe County Tuesday night.

Christopher Vesely, 42, of Conyers, was driving northbound on I-75 in a Lincoln Towncar, in the first lane, when he apparently lost control of the car and veered into the third lane.

According to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, as the Towncar crossed the other lanes of traffic, it was struck by a tractor trailer driven by a Summerville man. The Towncar then struck the median wall and was struck by a second tractor trailer. The Towncar was pinned between the two tractor trailers.

Vesely was pronounced dead on the scene of the accident and was wearing his seatbelt. His body was taken to the GBI Crime Lab in Atlanta. No other injuries were reported by the drivers of the tractor trailers.

The cause of the accident is under investigation. Deputies stated that the road was wet from recent rains but that it was not raining when the accident occurred.
