A man was found dead in the middle of the northbound lanes on I-75 in Marietta late Wednesday night— and police believe he may have been the victim of a hit and run.

Still, they are waiting on the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office to complete an autopsy to determine the official cause of the death. They are also trying to positive identify the man who appears to be in his 20s, according to Marietta police.

Around 10:30 p.m. officers responded to I-75 at Delk Road after getting a call about a person down in the middle of the northbound lanes of the interstate, police spokesman Officer David Baldwin said.

When they arrived they found the pedestrian dead at the scene.

“The initial on scene investigation revealed that the victim’s injuries were consistent with being struck by a vehicle, but investigators are currently working with the medical examiner’s office to determine a cause of death,” Officer Baldwin said.

So far, police said they have no witnesses or suspect in the incident. There was also no description of the vehicle involved and it was unclear what the man was doing on the interstate.

Anyone with any information into this crash is asked to contact Officer Stephen Miller at (770) 794-5356.
