A 22-year-old man died after being hit by a car on Highway 441 in Milledgeville early Thursday.
The Georgia State Patrol says it happened around 5:20 a.m. near West Campus Drive.
They say Victor Chatfield was hit by a Hyundai Sonata driven by an Eatonton man.
Several previous callers to the state patrol had reported a man "staggering" in the roadway, the GSP says.
The driver said he did not see Chatfield in the road, and the impact shattered his windshield, the state patrol says. The driver stopped at a nearby store to report the accident, they say.
A state patrol spokeswoman could not be reached for further comment.
