Lt. Jay Baker, spokesman with the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office, said there was “no indication the driver was speeding or impaired at the time of the collision,” which killed Herrera Mendez, 52.
The Acworth man died after he was hit by a Nissan sports utility vehicle traveling westbound on Highway 92 just west of Wade Green Road.
Baker said first responders arrived on the scene around 9:30 p.m. Friday night.
He noted the man was crossing the highway in a “dimly-lit area and not utilizing a crosswalk” when he was hit by car.
Mendez was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Cherokee Sheriff’s Office’s Traffic Enforcement Unit continues to investigate the accident.
