A pedestrian was hit Thursday morning by two vehicles and killed shortly after getting off a MARTA bus in Alpharetta, police said.
Ramona Kaye Devore, 54, of Jonesboro, was hit by a pickup truck and SUV about 6:50 a.m. as she crossed North Point Parkway south of Kimball Bridge Road, Alpharetta police spokesman Officer Jason Muenzer said.
She worked at Verizon, which is on the same street, according to Channel 2 Action News.
It was still dark at the time of the deadly accident, and the drivers “thought they were just hitting road debris,” Muenzer said.
Both drivers remained on scene and spoke with investigators.
“At this time, we don’t believe that we’re going to be seeking any charges,” Muenzer said. “We believe this to be a horrible accident.”
The bus driver was “completely unaware that any of this was taking place,” Muenzer said. According to MARTA spokeswoman Stephany Fisher, the bus continued on its route.
North Point Parkway southbound at Kimball Bridge Road was closed until just before noon so authorities could process the scene, the WSB 24-hour Traffic Center reported.
The investigation also affected multiple bus routes, MARTA said in a tweet.
“Due to police activity on North Point Pkwy,” the transit agency wrote, “routes 140, 141 & 143 will be experiencing delays.”
