CBS 46 News reports on a hit-and-run accident that left a construction worker dead in Marietta on Saturday, September 12th.
The incident occurred near Exit 261 (Delk Road) of Interstate 75 around 9:00 p.m. on Saturday. A 30-year-old Chicago man working as a construction worker on roadway work in the area was placing signage on the shoulder of I-75 when he was struck by a vehicle which knocked him into the path of a second vehicle that also struck him. The first vehicle was believed to be a black Volkswagen Golf GTI that did not stop at the scene, according to responding police officers. Police believe the vehicle to have gotten off at the next exit, South Marietta Parkway, but do not know its route after that. The Golf is believed to have front end damage and is missing its passenger-side mirror.
The second vehicle stopped, and the driver is cooperating with police.
