According to Richmond County sheriff’s Sgt. Danny Whitehead, the 41-year-old woman left the Fishbowl Lounge on Lumpkin Road and was trying to cross Peach Orchard Road when she was struck by a Honda Accord on Peach Orchard Road. She was not using the crosswalk, he said.
The woman was taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital. No charges will be filed against the driver.
Saturday’s incident is the third involving a pedestrian in less than a week. On Monday, a 5-year-old boy was struck and killed trying to cross Peach Orchard Road. On Tuesday, a 47-year-old North Carolina man died after being hit by a car on Washington Road.
