Aragon man killed in late afternoon one car wreck

March 27, 2019

An Aragon man who wasn’t far from home died in the emergency room at Kennestone Hospital during attempts to revive him, according to Polk County Coroner Tony Brazier.

Brazier said that Jeremy Fincher, 33, of a Aragon-Taylorsville Road address, was declared dead by emergency room doctors at Kennestone Hospital in Cobb County after a nearly hour-long attempt to save his life.

Fincher was driving alone on Aragon-Taylorsville Road not far from home when it was reported his vehicle overturned and he was ejected. Brazier said it was reported to him by Georgia State Patrol officers on the scene they believe Fincher was not wearing his seat belt at the time when the wreck was reported around 5:17 p.m.

When emergency officials from Redmond EMS and Polk County Volunteer Fire and Rescue arrived on the scene, they began immediate lifesaving efforts on Fincher and called for the AirLife helicopter to make a quick landing and transport Fincher to Atlanta Medical Center for emergency treatment.

Brazier said while over Cobb County airspace, Fincher’s condition worsened and the decision was made to divert to Kennestone Hospital, where upon landing emergency room personnel began treating him while in traumatic arrest.

“The physicians and staff at Kennestone ER worked for 45 minutes trying everything under the sun,” Brazier said. “They were unfortunately unable to save him.”

Officers from Georgia State Patrol’s Cartersville post is investigating the wreck.
