Pedestrian struck, killed on North Expressway early Saturday


A pedestrian attempting to cross North Expressway early Saturday morning was struck and killed.

According to Spalding County Coroner Sonny Foster, the victim was struck by a Volkswagon Beetle at approximately 5:30 a.m. in the vicinity of the McDonald’s located at 1569 North Expressway.

The victim’s identity has not yet been positively established. Foster said a preliminary identification has been made, but will not be publicly released pending independent confirmation by a relative.

Foster said he has exhausted nearly all means of verifying the victim’s identity and may seek the public’s assistance if he is unable to make contact with next of kin.

The Grip will continue to follow this tragic incident and report updated information as it becomes available.
