A 29-year-old Lilburn man was struck and killed after stepping in front of a moving vehicle Wednesday in Gwinnett County. And police said the driver is not expected to be charged.

The incident happened around 10:40 p.m. on Stone Mountain Highway near Glen Club Drive near Stone Mountain, according to Gwinnett County police.

Investigators said Mr. Neal Patel was attempting to cross Stone Mountain Highway outside of a crosswalk at the same time Mr. Joseph Mondoux, 20, was traveling westbound on the same road in a 1994 Acura Integra in the far left lane.

“Mr. Patel, in his attempt to cross the roadway, stepped in front of the path of Mr. Mondoux and was struck by the vehicle,” police spokesman Cpl. Edwin Ritter said.

Mr. Patel died at the scene.

Investigators have not yet determined why Mr. Patel stepped in front of the moving vehicle, but they said alcohol and speed did not contribute to the wreck.
