A man was hit by a car and killed while crossing Rockbridge Road in DeKalb County late Sunday, and police say the person who struck him is still on the run.
A 25-year-old-man was hit by a passing black sedan traveling east around 11:40 p.m., DeKalb police told Channel 2 Action News. He died as a result of his injuries.
He was identified by the DeKalb County Medical Examiner’s office as Martavious Cardaius Parker of Stone Mountain. Police spokeswoman Shiera Campbell said Parker worked at a local McDonald’s and was walking home after his shift.
Campbell said the sedan was speeding.
“This is an ongoing investigation,” she told Channel 2.
The incident was one of two deadly hit-and-runs in metro Atlanta in a span of nearly eight hours. A pedestrian was struck and killed on Old National Highway and Jerome Road in the city of South Fulton on Monday morning. Police have a driver in custody in that case.
