Man struck by car while crossing Lee Highway in Chattanooga

No charges will be filed against a motorist whose vehicle struck a pedestrian Friday night, Chattanooga police said.

The driver and his wife told police they did not see Atcitty, who was wearing dark clothing.

Atcitty was listed in stable condition in a local hospital, police said.

Feel so sad to hear about this man. And now a day’s accident is rising at highways. I think government should take some decision for the safety for person at highway. Apple repairs

I am saddened to hear the man was injured and I wish him well. But, if he had observed normal safety procedures and crossed the highway at the light he would not have been injured. The government can not legislate or enforce common sense. It is not against the law to be stupid. There are times we get to see Darwin in action.
