Police are investigating after a 27-year-old man was hit by several vehicles Sunday while trying to cross Ga. 400.

The victim, Nolan Farrell of Brookhaven, was hit in the northbound lanes of the freeway between Spalding Drive and Northridge Road, according to Sandy Springs police. Officers responding to the accident about 9:30 p.m. found Farrell dead at the scene.

No one else was reported injured.

“All drivers remained and gave statements to investigators,” Sandy Springs police Sgt. Sam Worsham told “At this time, no charges have been filed, however the investigation is still active.”

The Sandy Springs police traffic unit is leading the investigation, which shut down all lanes of Ga. 400 North for several hours Sunday night.


Investigators cleared the lanes about 1 a.m. Monday, according to the WSB 24-hour Traffic Center.
