Macon, GA – Lee Tukes Killed in Pedestrian Crash at Eisenhower Pkwy & C St 

Macon, GA (July 2, 2022) – On Friday night, July 1, a man was killed in a fatal pedestrian accident at an intersection in Macon. 

According to Bibb County officials, the accident happened just before midnight at the intersection of Eisenhower Parkway and C Street. A man was walking across the westbound lanes at the intersection when he was suddenly struck by a white vehicle. A second vehicle was traveling behind the first and also struck the pedestrian.

The pedestrian, who has since been identified as 61-year-old Lee Tukes, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene due to traumatic injuries. Nobody else was hurt in the collision. 

Due to the severity of the accident, the roadway was blocked in the area for an extended period of time.
