Family of Georgia Hit-and-Run Victim Searching for Information about Accident


March 10, 2019

DEKALB COUNTY, GA. – According to an online news story reported by wsbtv.com, the family of a Georgia hit-and-run victim is searching for information about the accident. The collision occurred in DeKalb County, Georgia, when a young woman was struck by multiple vehicles on an interstate. The family wants to know what happened and why the woman was on the interstate.* 

The accident occurred at approximately 5 a.m. on Wednesday, February 27, on Interstate 285 near Spaghetti Junction in DeKalb County. The report from WSB-TV states that a 23-year-old woman was hit by several vehicles on the Buford Highway entrance to I-285 West. None of the drivers involved stayed at the scene.

Friends and family of the victim said her car was not anywhere in the area, and she did not live near the site of the accident. They do not understand why she was in the area to begin with and are wondering if she had been riding in someone else’s car prior to the accident. They are wondering if she might have gotten out of a car or was pushed from a car near the site of the collision, the report from WSB-TV said. 

DeKalb County officers told reporters with WSB-TV that debris from at least two vehicles was at the scene when investigators arrived. Officers reportedly said that the damage to those vehicles appeared significant enough that the drivers would have known they hit someone. 

The victim was reportedly a college student who was taking a semester off from school and working at a retail cell phone store. The family asks that anyone who might have information about the accident contact the DeKalb County Police Department as soon as possible.
