Deadly pedestrian-vehicle accident in Gwinnett

Deadly pedestrian-vehicle accident in Gwinnett on Highway 316

A sad incident occurred yesterday on Georgia 316 in Gwinnett County according to a report from the Gwinnett Daily Post (click here for the story). A man who apparently had a brain injury was a pedestrian and darted in front of a vehicle. He was struck and killed. There will be no charges filed against the driver as it appears the deceased individual was at fault.

Anyone who has driven Highway 316 in Gwinnett, Barrow, Oconee, and Clarke counties knows that it is a very dangerous road. With a speed limit of 65 mph in most areas, but without controlled access on much of the highway, it is not uncommon to turn on the news and hear of yet another fatality on this Georgia highway. While the incident yesterday was not one of the typical collisions that local residents are familiar with, we all know to use extra caution while traveling on 316.
