Police work to identify pedestrian killed near Atlanta

LILBURN — Police are trying to identify a man who was struck and killed while he crossed a road in the Atlanta suburb of Lilburn.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/17nCuR9) that the man was struck in a dimly-lit section of street near Pleasant Hill and Burns roads around 8:45 p.m. Sunday. He was taken to Eastside Medical Center, where he died.

No charges are pending against the driver, whose name was not released.

The pedestrian is described as a Hispanic male between 25 and 35 years old with short black hair and facial stubble.

A receipt in his possession led police to a Walmart store in Duluth, where they recovered surveillance video of the man parking a red pick-up truck with a silver tool box in the back and entering the store.
