Tucker, GA – Man Killed in Fatal Pedestrian Crash on Lawrenceville Hwy
Tucker, GA (March 14, 2022) – A man was killed in a fatal pedestrian crash that took place on a major roadway in Tucker on Monday morning, March 14.
According to local officials, the accident happened at 1 a.m. on the Lawrenceville Highway near Cooledge Road. A pedestrian male was walking in the area when he suddenly started to cross the highway. He was suddenly struck by a car that was traveling west in the area. The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene.
Several local responders, including paramedics and fire crews, were immediately dispatched to the scene to help those in need. The pedestrian, identified as a man in his late 50s, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene due to traumatic injuries. Nobody else was hurt in the accident.
The roadway was blocked in several lanes of traffic for some period of time as police worked to clear the scene. This led to delays for some time.
