The New­ton County Sher­iff’s Depart­ment is seek­ing help from the com­mu­nity in lo­cat­ing the per­son who stuck a pedes­trian on Brown Bridge Road Sun­day night.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, a per­son driv­ing past the area no­ticed an Asian woman ly­ing on the side of the road at roughly 8 p.m. She was curled into a fe­tal po­si­tion.

“All we know at this point is that deputies found some ev­i­dence of what was pos­si­bly a pedes­trian ac­ci­dent. That’s all we have right now,” said NCSO 1st Lt. Mark Mitchell.

The ve­hi­cle that struck the woman was not stopped nor iden­ti­fied. It is pos­si­bly a Chevro­let orGMCtruck, ac­cord­ing to the re­port.

The vic­tim was trans­ported to At­lanta Med­i­cal Cen­ter by ground am­bu­lance and the case is cur­rently un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact the NCSO at (678) 625-1400 or to leave a tip on­line at http://sher­iff.co.new­ton.ga.us. All tips can re­main anony­mous.
