A 77-year-old Cumming man was killed Thursday evening after being struck by a vehicle on Canton Highway (Hwy. 20) at its intersection with Post Road.
Michael Paul Carbonara was “attempting to cross Canton Highway in or near the crosswalk” around 7:45 p.m. Oct. 5 when Rigney Gilbert “Gill” Hoffman, 19, of Gainesville, allegedly struck the man in the road’s westbound lane, according Cpl. Pete Sabella, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office.
Hoffman was driving a Ford F-150 pickup truck when the crash occurred, he said.
The sheriff’s office traffic specialist unit (TSU) is investigating the crash, though Sabella said neither drugs nor alcohol are suspected as factors at this time.
No charges have been filed.
