The 60-year-old driver who allegedly struck the woman was charged with driving without a valid driver’s license, according to Cobb County police. But Mr. Milton Ariaz, of Mableton, is not expected to be charged for hitting the woman, police said.

The incident happened around 5:25 a.m. on Mableton Parkway near Mebleton, police spokesman Officer Mike Bowman said.

Mrs. Vanessa Ordonez De Los Santos, 31, of Mableton, was walking in the northbound lanes of Mableton Parkway near South Gordon Road when she was struck.

Mr. Ariaz was driving a yellow 2001 Nissan Xterra northbound on Mableton Parkway when he allegedly struck the woman, Officer Bowman said.
