Cops: Man waits for his mom, then flees fatal DeKalb hit-and-run scene

An Atlanta man was arrested last Friday in DeKalb County, accused of fleeing a wreck that left a woman dead in 2016.

Freddie Henderson Lundy, who turned 34 in jail Thursday, allegedly waited for his mother to come to the scene on Linecrest Road in Ellenwood, warrants say. Once she arrived, he fled on foot, leaving Mary Lundy with the 2015 Chrysler 300 and Lillian Griffin-Robinson laying in the road, police allege.

The mother identified her son as the driver who hit the pedestrian before daylight on Nov. 30, 2016, according to the warrants.

Police said the victim, 26, was wearing dark clothing in the poorly lit area.

Freddie Lundy is charged with hit and run, homicide by vehicle and driving with a suspended license.
