State Patrol Investigating Fatal Hit and Run

The Georgia State Patrol needs your help in finding a suspect in a deadly hit-and-run accident. Troopers in Bulloch County started getting calls about 7:30pm last night from drivers on Interstate 16 that there was a woman running along the interstate eastbound, near the Bulloch-Bryan County line.

Just a few minutes later, they received another call saying that the woman had been hit by a vehicle, but the driver kept going.

Troopers found her near the 136 mile maker and closed down the eastbound lanes. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Troopers have not yet released her name.

Anyone with information about this hit-and-run investigation is asked to call the Statesboro GSP post at 871-1100 or CrimeStoppers at 234-2020.
