Police closed all northbound lanes.

A late night accident on Moreland Avenue left a pedestrian dead.

The person was hit just off Constitution Road around 11 p.m. Sunday night.  Police said the driver appeared to have remained at the scene. 

Police have not yet released any information about the person who was killed. 

DeKalb County Police investigators closed off several lanes of Moreland Avenue during the investigation because the accident scene was large. The roadway has now been reopened. 

Witnesses said this stretch of Moreland has lots of cars and trucks, many traveling at a fairly high rate of speed, but also said it's rare to see people walking alongside and/or trying to cross the 6-lane road on foot.
