Gwinnett County, GA – Police Looking for Driver Involved in Deadly I-85 Crash

Gwinnett County, GA (October 19, 2022) – The Gwinnett County police’s Accident Investigation Unit is looking for the driver of a silver or white SUV that they believe was involved in a fatal accident before fleeing the scene.

Officers said a 40-year-old male from Atlanta was ejected from his Honda Accord on Interstate 85 South, just north of the Beaver Ruin exit on Oct. 18. They said his car struck the median and rolled over.

Officers believe he may have been hit by, or driving near, the SUV when it happened.

The driver of that white or silver vehicle is said to have continued driving after the incident.

Officers are still determining the true cause of the accident but are requesting the public’s help in finding the unknown driver in the meantime.


I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.


Fatal Car Accidents in Georgia

Every hour, car accidents occur throughout Georgia. Though many car accidents are generally minor, others cause significant harm and can be fatal to anyone involved. 

When someone close to you passes away as a result of an accident, it might leave you feeling helpless and isolated. During the difficult time of grieving the loss of a loved one, you may find yourself worrying about how you will be able to pay the mounting debts that are piling up against you.

  • Loss of enjoyment of life
