An 85-year-old man was struck and killed while crossing an intersection by Kennesaw State University Wednesday morning, according to the Cobb County Police Department.

Around 7 a.m. Wednesday, 85-year-old Kap Suh of Kennesaw was walking across Chastain Road at Kennesaw State University Road.

At the same time, a 2013 white Chevrolet box truck heading westbound on Chastain Road was stopped at a traffic light.

When the traffic light cycled to green, “the Chevrolet struck Suh and knocked him into the intersection,” according to a Cobb police news release.

Suh was taken to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. The driver of the Chevrolet was not injured.

The Cobb County Police Department’s Selective Traffic Enforcement Program Unit is investigating the death.
