Pedestrian struck, killed on Deans Bridge Road

An Augusta man was struck and killed by a vehicle on Deans Bridge Road early Saturday morning, according to Richmond County Coroner Mark Bowen.

Demarcus Simmons, 34, of the 500 block of Richmond Hill Road West, was a passenger in a vehicle that was parked on the northbound side of the 3600 block of Deans Bridge Road. Simmons attempted to cross the road and was struck by a northbound vehicle in the left through lane, according to a news release from the coroner.

Simmons died from blunt force trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene at 12:55 a.m., Bowen said.

No autopsy is scheduled. Toxicology tests will be performed since alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor, Bowen said.
