DeKalb County police are investigating the death of a man who was run over and killed at the intersection of Covington Highway and Wellborn Drive early Sunday morning.
The man, who police have not yet identified, was walking along Covington Highway at about 1:30 a.m. when at least one car hit him in front of the Saint Stephen Lutheran Church.
Channel 2 Action News was on the scene as police interviewed drivers who stopped after the incident. Investigators told Channel 2 they were not sure how many times the man was struck or why he was walking in the area.
“One or more vehicles may have hit him and it’s an ongoing investigation. That’s about all we know at this time,” DeKalb County Police Lieutenant C.T. Barkett said.
Police said the incident does not appear to be a hit and run.
