Two people were killed within 24 hours in separate hit-and-run crashes on Old National Highway, Fulton County police said Monday.
On Sunday, a 36-year-old man was struck and killed on Old National at Jolly Road by a Honda van, Detective Melissa Parker said. The van, which was reported stolen, was found Monday morning at Creel Park, she said. The Fulton Medical Examiner’s office identified the man killed as Isaac Moore Jr. of East Point.
Then, early Monday, a man waiting at a south Fulton County bus stop was struck and killed by a silver SUV that kept driving, police said.
The man was at a bus stop at the intersection of Old National and Burdett Road when he was struck by a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee that jumped the curb, according to police and witnesses. The impact sent the man in the air, and when he landed across the intersection, he was not moving, a witness told Channel 2 Action News.
“I turned and I saw something flying in the air,” Andre Sailers said. “I didn’t know what it was.”
The man was declared dead at the scene. His name was not immediately released.
Police later located the Jeep abandoned less than three miles away on Godby Road, Parker said. The Jeep was impounded and being examined, she said.
Police have no one in custody in either case.
