A Marietta woman who decided to make a short strip to a nearby convenience store this weekend was struck and killed by at least three vehicles while attempting to cross the street.
According the Marietta Police Department, 53-year-old Rochelle Brown was visiting friends close to Allgood Road on Saturday evening when she decided to walk across North Marietta Parkway to a local store. She was hit by a truck while attempting to cross the street, followed by two additional vehicles. The driver of the truck stopped to help Brown, but the other vehicles continued on. The accident occurred at around 7 p.m.
Brown was taken to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital shortly after with life-threatening injuries. On early Sunday morning, she passed away.
Police are still searching for clues regarding the two vehicles that sped away without rendering aid to the victim. Brown's mom, Barbara Brown, is not only shocked over the sudden death of her daughter, but is astounded that the other drivers wouldn't stop.
“Why wouldn’t you stop? We’re humans. We just can’t go around and drive fast and hit somebody and act like that person don’t matter. All of us matter," Brown said in an interview on Monday.
Meanwhile, family and friends are hoping that at least someone will come forward with information.
The Marietta Police urge anyone with any information to call 770-794-5300.
