A man who crashed through a Paulding County gas station parking lot and injured several people Sunday before attempting to take his own life has died, authorities confirmed.

The crash took place just after 10 a.m. at the Exxon on Ga. 101 across from the Roses Store in the Union community. A white GMC Sierra crew cab truck was traveling south on Ga. 101 toward the intersection with Ga. 120 when the driver appeared to purposefully drive off the road and through the gas station’s sign, according to a Paulding sheriff’s office news release.

The truck continued on to hit multiple vehicles in the parking lot and some gas pumps, the news release states. Bystanders then approached the truck to check on the driver, who took out a handgun and attempted to take his own life.

The man was rushed in critical condition to an Atlanta area hospital, according to the sheriff’s office. He died of his injuries, which were not disclosed, later the same day.

Several people who were at the gas station at the time of the incident were injured, authorities said. As of Sunday afternoon, none of their injuries were life-threatening.
