Georgia Man Dies at Hospital After Collision with Car
MARIETTA, GA. – As reported in a news article from mdjonline.com, a Georgia man died in the hospital from injuries he sustained during a collision with a car. The accident occurred in Marietta, Georgia, and authorities have not yet completed their investigation.*
A 28-year-old man from Marietta was struck by a vehicle on Powder Springs Street, according to police. A 2008 Infiniti G5 hit Wilder Esteban Vincente-Vincente in a situation that police described as Vincente darting into the street. Officers reported Vincente was not inside a crosswalk, and he ran into the path of the Infiniti in the area of the street just south of Chestnut Hill Road.
Police have not yet provided additional explanations for the accident. The driver of the Infiniti, whose name was not released, appears to have stopped after the collision and waited for police to arrive at the scene. Police said charges against the driver are not expected at this time, given that it seems the driver could not have prevented the crash.
Emergency crews at the scene transported Vincente to WellStar Kennestone Hospital via Metro Ambulance. He reportedly suffered severe injuries, and he did not survive. He was pronounced dead at the hospital a few days later, on January 1.
The Marietta Police Department said in a released that officers’ thoughts and prayers were going out to the families and loved ones of everyone involved. They noted that almost 260 pedestrians died in traffic collisions in Georgia during 2017, and that almost as many died in 2018. Officers took the opportunity to urge people to practice appropriate safety by using designated crosswalks at all times and looking right and left before crossing any streets.
