N. Georgia woman dies in wreck

CANTON, Ga. — An 18-year-old woman died in a one-car wreck in Cherokee County, and police believe speed may have been a factor.

Lt. Jay Baker of the sheriff's department said that Clara Norton was thrown from the car she was driving when it left a road near Canton just before 6 p.m. Friday. Baker says the car ended up in a creek.

Norton and passenger Jacob Arowood, 18, were both taken to Northside Cherokee Hospital. Norton later died there, and Arowood was treated for minor injuries.

Baker says Norton wasn't wearing a seat belt but Arowood was.
