Savannah-Chatham Metro Major Accident Investigation Team is continuing to investigate a deadly pedestrian accident.

Just after 11 p.m. Oct. 11, David Williams, 36, was believed to be walking home from work on Ogeechee Rd. when he was struck by a Chevrolet Monte Carlo traveling southbound. The car, driven by Clarence Parker, struck Williams as he was walking in the right lane of the roadway.

Michael Alcott, traveling south bound on Ogeechee Rd. in a Pontiac Grand Am, could not see the pedestrian lying in the roadway and struck him as well. 

Williams was transported to Memorial University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. 

But Williams' family tells WTOC that if more traffic lights and sidewalks were added on Ogeechee Rd., her brother would be alive today.

"That road is dangerous. How would you feel getting a phone call at 6:15 in the morning telling you that your brother was in a fatal accident and killed?" said Glenda Rojas, William's sister.

Rojas says her brother worked at the Waffle House near I-16 and Dean Forest Rd. She says Williams was wearing all black as part of his work uniform, and normally caught a ride home from work.

So far no charges have been filed against the drivers.
