Person struck and killed along I-95 northbound ID'ed

BRUNSWICK, GA (WTOC) -

The Georgia State Patrol has identified the man who was struck and killed Monday morning along Interstate 95.

Donal Wiggs, 35, from Jacksonville Beach was traveling along I-95 northbound just before the Brunswick/Jekyll/Waycross Exit to S.R. 520 after running out of gas.

Wiggs then got out and began walking toward the exit when he entered the roadway and was hit by a tractor trailer. 

The driver of the tractor trailer left the scene, but troopers tell WTOC that the driver may not even know he hit the man due to the angle of impact.

According to witnesses and Georgia State Patrol, they believe alcohol may have been a factor.

If you know anything about this incident or were traveling in the area during that time, please contact Georgia State Patrol or the Glynn County Police Department. 

The Georgia State Patrol is still investigating the incident.
