A pedestrian was injured after being hit Sunday afternoon by a vehicle pulling a trailer near MARTA’s North Springs station, the Georgia Department of Transportation said.
The man was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, said Capt. Steve Rose, with the Sandy Springs Police.
Traffic was back to normal Sunday afternoon on Georgia 400 after three lanes out of four northbound lanes on the highway were initially closed by authorities investigating the accident.
The incident occurred between noon and 1 p.m. after the man stopped his vehicle near the MARTA station to ask directions, said Rose. As the man was returning to his vehicle, he stopped to pick up something on the ground.
At that moment a car pulling a trailer swerved out of its lane for undetermined reasons and clipped the man, said Rose. He said no charges have been filed.
The identities of the injured man and the driver of the other vehicle weren’t immediately available.
