Officers are unsure what time the crash took place. But neighbors found 53-year-old victim Robert Morrison, and called 911 just after 11 p.m., police previously said. Neighbors said Morrison had been doing yard work and was wearing a reflective vest when he was hit.
Morrison was seriously injured and taken to Wellstar Kennestone hospital for treatment of numerous broken bones, including a broken leg, arm, neck, and ribs, according to police.
On Monday and Tuesday, a team from First Baptist Church of Marietta and neighbors volunteered time completing repairs and yard work at Morrison’s home, located in the city’s historic district.
One of the church members, Paul Hill, said that the “Mission Marietta Week” effort was already on the calendar before Morrison was struck. Another volunteer told Channel 2 Action News the accident made the work more pressing.
“When I pulled up this morning, other neighbors were already cutting the grass and doing a lot of yard work ahead of us,” the volunteer said Monday.
Vicente-Ramos remained Thursday morning in the Cobb County jail, booking records showed. His bond was set at $25,000.
The investigation into the crash continues, according to police.
