Marietta police investigating pedestrian fatality

Marietta, Ga., police are currently investigating a pedestrian fatality crash that occurred on Powder Springs Road near Chestnut Hill Road at 8 p.m. on Monday.

The initial on scene investigation reveals that the victim, identified as 49 year old Danny Nation of Marietta, was riding his bicycle in the northbound lanes of Powder Springs Road. Police believe that Nation attempted to cross the northbound lanes and was struck by a 1994 Cadillac and then by a 1998 Mitsubishi 3000.

Both vehicles stopped immediately.

The drivers of the vehicles called 911 and attempted to render aid to Nation. Nation suffered fatal injuries in the crash and was pronounced deceased at the scene. The area where Nation was crossing was dark and he did not have any reflective clothing on.

The bike had a head light but no signs of a rear reflector or light. The crash investigation is still active but it does not appear that either driver will face charges.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Geoff Culpepper at 770-794-5357.
