The hunt is on for two drivers who hit a woman on the Downtown Connector without stopping.
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.
At least one of the vehicles tried to avoid hitting the woman, who was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in “grave condition,” Officer Lisa Bender told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The victim remained in critical condition early Wednesday, according to Channel 2.
This is the second pedestrian accident on the connector in less than a week.
Kaden Campbell, 19, was killed Friday night trying to cross the interstate at I-85 South and I-75 North, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported.
The driver stayed on the scene and was not charged.
Campbell was a student at Georgia Tech.
