Police are searching for a driver accused of a deadly hit-and-run along Ga. 400 on Wednesday morning.
About 2:45 a.m., the pedestrian’s body was discovered along the highway near Spalding Drive, Sandy Springs police said in a news release. The person’s name is being withheld until next of kin is notified.
According to witnesses, the suspect drove a 2006 or 2007 Honda Civic, which should be missing its passenger-side mirror and have severe front-end damage. Police do not know the color of the vehicle.
The roadway reopened shortly before 5:40 a.m., according to police.
That stretch of Ga. 400 didn’t remain open for long, since a second crash temporarily blocked all southbound lanes inside the Perimeter, according to the WSB 24-hour Traffic Center. The incident happened in a construction zone below the Glenridge Connector.
All lanes reopened by 6:50 a.m. Police have not released any other details on the second crash.
Anyone with information on the deadly hit-and-run is asked to contact investigators at 770-551-6915 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
