79 year old Tran Hong died at the scene
LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. - Lawrenceville Police are asking for the public's help in catching a deadly hit and run driver.
Investigators said Tran Hong,79, was walking along the side of Johnson Road Monday afternoon when she was hit by a U-Haul truck near Daniel Drive. Police think the U-Haul left the roadway before it hit Hong, who died at the scene.
Police said after hitting Hong, the U-Haul driver took off, leaving her to die.
"Why? Why didn't you stop? I mean, that's it. It's so simple," said Ronnie Spears, who ran to help Hong after the crash. "That's a human being."
Investigators don't have a good description of that driver, other than to say he's a male.
The U-Haul suffered damage as a result of the wreck. It should be missing a portion of the right front headlight and corner light.
Anyone with information is asked to call Lawrenceville Police right away.
