Woman Struck in Cherokee Crosswalk

The fatal accident occurred last night at the intersection of Georgia 92 and Wade Green Road.

A 51-year-old Acworth woman was struck by a car and killed Monday night after she fell in the crosswalk of Georgia 92 and Wade Green Road.

About 10:30 p.m. Monday, 51-year-old Melanie June Mayes was crossing Georgia 92 when she fell, Georgia State Patrol spokesman Gordy Wright said in a news release.

A 2006 Pontiac G6 hit Mayes, who died at the scene.

No charges have been filed against the driver, 25-year-old Tiffany Tashay Thuesdee, also of Acworth.

"The crash remains under investigation," Wright said.
