Police do not expect to cite the driver of a vehicle that struck and killed a 52-year-old pedestrian late Monday night.
Patrick John McDonald, 52, of Holly Springs was walking along the outbound side of Avent Ferry Road, where he was struck from behind by a passing motorist, said town spokesman Mark Andrews. The accident occurred about 11:15 p.m. near Trotter Bluffs Drive, near the South Park shopping center, Andrews said.
An accident report was not available Tuesday that would have indicated the circumstances of the collision, or whether alcohol or other factors played a role.
But, Andrews said, investigators “do not anticipate filing charges in the case.” Police have not released the name of the driver.
