A Union City man was killed Wednesday when his car went off the road and hit a tree.

Police were not releasing the 47-year-old man's name Wednesday pending notification of next of kin, said Clayton County Police Capt. Jeff Turner. It was unclear why the man's Mitsubishi Eclipse left the roadway on Ga. Highway 138 near Chasewoods Drive around 10:36 a.m. There were no skid marks, Turner said.

The car was airborne for a short time before hitting a pine tree.
