South Forsyth woman fatally struck by van ID’d
SOUTH FORSYTH – A pedestrian was fatally struck by a vehicle Thursday morning in south Forsyth, officials said.
The woman was reportedly on Windermere Parkway near South Forsyth Middle School about 6:30 a.m. April 27 when she was hit, according to Forsyth County Fire Division Chief Jason Shivers.
Bystanders performed CPR on her until emergency units arrived, Shivers said, when she was then transported to Northside Hospital-Forsyth. She was pronounced dead shortly after arriving.
A traffic specialist unit with the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene and is investigating the incident, said Deputy Doug Rainwater, a spokesman for the agency.
The circumstances of the incident and further details about the woman’s identity were not immediately available.
She reportedly did not have an ID on her, which makes the process of notifying her family harder, Rainwater said. Her name will be released once that happens.
The incident marks the third serious accident in Forsyth County in two days.
On Wednesday, April 26, a motorcyclist was critically injured and had a limb amputated after a pickup truck reportedly pulled out in front of him on Browns Bridge Road (Hwy. 369) between Shady Grove and Holtzclaw roads.
Later that day, a bicyclist was on the side of Hidden Creek Point across from Kelly Mill Elementary School when he collided with a vehicle backing out of a driveway, sustaining critical head and facial injuries in spite of wearing a helmet.
