A pedestrian accident claimed the life of a man Tuesday morning, May 7, 2019. According to, “[a] man walking in a right lane was struck just before 6 a.m. by a Nissan Versa as the car was merging onto the interstate from the Ga. 61 entrance ramp…[t]he impact catapulted the pedestrian into the center lane.”  According to the report, a Georgia State Patrol spokesperson said “it is very likely that the pedestrian was struck by a number of unknown vehicles traveling westbound as well…[h]owever, no other vehicles stopped or returned to the scene.”

The interstate was closed while troopers investigated, no word on any charges being filed according to the media report.
