KENNESAW — A pedestrian died after being struck by a vehicle early this morning on Cobb Parkway.

The 45-year-old man, whose name has not yet been released, died at the scene after apparently being hit by a passenger van while walking on Cobb Parkway near Mack Dobbs Road, said Officer Scott Luther, spokesman for Kennesaw Police Department.

Luther said it was not yet known if charges would be filed against the driver.

“It’s still a very active investigation,” he said.

Not at intersections

There needs to be some sidewalks and crosswalks on Cobb Parkway. I was recently at the Wal Mart and Sam's Club near Roswell Road and noticed there are no crosswalks (even at the intersections)or sidewalks even though there are bus stops all along the route. This is blatant misuse of funds and an accident waiting to happen! Come on Mr. Lee and the rest of the commissioners, if you are going to run a bus system make sure you have sidewalks and crosswalks to get people to the stops. Otherwise you should be held responsible when peole get killed crossing the streets to get to them.

I agree 100%. There needs to sidewalks throughout the whole Cobb Pkwy Corridor. Even here in Kennesaw there are heavily traveled dirt trails up and down Cobb Pkwy.. Although we have no bus service, it would encourage people to walk more if we had safe sidewalks. Shopping centers will install sidewalks that only cover their property at the road. The county needs to connect these.
