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.
A 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.
