The accident occurred early one morning in September on Georgia Highway 400 in Atlanta. The Atlanta Police Department and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution report that at approximately 1:20 a.m., a pedestrian was walking in the outside right lane of Ga. 400 and was struck by a vehicle near to the intersection with Lenox Road. Following the collision, the driver fled the scene and did not alert authorities to the accident.
