Three southbound drivers hit the woman as she tried to cross the connector just before 8 p.m. Tuesday, according to Atlanta police.

Only one stayed on the scene near the University Avenue exit. That driver will not be charged, police told Channel 2 Action News.

Authorities have not released a description of the two cars that kept going. And they have not determined why the victim was on one of metro Atlanta’s major interstates.
