Hit-and-run suspects sought after woman’s death near Spaghetti Junction

The family of a 22-year-old woman who was killed after being hit by several cars on I-285 near Spaghetti Junction last week are still searching for answers. Police are also searching, looking for multiple hit-and-run suspects who left her to die.

On Feb. 27, Danna Rodriguez was hit and killed around 5 a.m., but authorities haven’t determined why she was in the middle of the interstate, Channel 2 Action News reported. 

DeKalb County police told AJC.com it is being treated as a deadly hit-and-run, and parts from at least two cars were found at the scene. They have no witnesses.

A friend of Rodriguez told Channel 2 she was taking a semester off from college and working at a cellphone store near Gwinnett County, which is where she lived. Her friend said she doesn’t believe Rodriguez would’ve walked on the interstate to take her own life.

GoFundMe page was created to help the family pay for funeral expenses. As of Thursday afternoon, it had raised more than $18,000.

Police haven’t released descriptions of the suspects’ cars, but anyone with information is asked to contact them at 678-406-7929.
