Moments later, the driver crashed.
Two more 911 calls rolled in, telling police a person, identified as 19-year-old Bridget Thompson, was walking away from the crash scene towards the GA-15/US441.

The driver of a Ford F-250, 56-year-old Timothy Mark Rodgers of Lexington, Ga., told the trooper he was traveling in the right lane of the GA-10 Outer Loop when Thompson walked into the roadway. He said the highway was dark and admitted he did not see her until it was too late.
