Atlanta, GA – Update: Devyn Norman Killed in Pedestrian Accident on Downtown Connector

Atlanta, GA (September 8, 2022) – Around 11:10 p.m. on the night of Sunday, September 4, a woman was killed in a fatal pedestrian accident on an Atlanta highway. She has since been identified by police. 

Atlanta officials confirmed that the accident happened on the Downtown Connector near the Brookwood split. A woman and the driver she was in a vehicle with were involved in a collision on the highway. The female passenger and the driver got out of the crashed vehicle and climbed over a dividing wall on the highway so that they could seek help. The two victims were both struck by a vehicle that was headed northbound on the highway. They were then struck by a second vehicle that was unable to stop in time. 

Several Atlanta responders, including paramedics and fire crews, were called to the scene to help those in need. The passenger from the vehicle, identified as 27-year-old Devyn Norman, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene due to traumatic injuries. The other pedestrian was taken to the hospital but is expected to recover. 

The roadway was blocked in several lanes of traffic for some time following the collision. Police confirmed that there could be charges against the driver of the first vehicle. 

The investigation into the circumstances of the accident continues. 

We offer our warmest sympathies to the family and friends of the victim whose life was lost in this accident. We also hope that the injured pedestrian receives a full recovery.
