Juan Guadalupe Colon, the 26-year-old pedestrian who stepped in front of a vehicle in Austell has died.  
Cobb County Police say that Austell stepped in front of a Chevrolet Suburban that was driving westbound on Six Flags Drive in Austell at approximately 7pm on Friday. He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Colon died from his injuries on Saturday morning. 
 
The accident is under investigation, but police do not expect that charges will be filed against the 32-year-old woman who was driving the vehicle. 
 
According to a story aired on CBS Atlanta, Six Flags Drive is a particularly dangerous street for pedestrians. Many residents in the area do not drive and are dependent on busses. Yet, one side of the street does not have a sidewalk and crosswalks are few and far apart.  
 
When a pedestrian is hit by a car, the pedestrian almost always sustains injuries. If a car is moving at 30 mph or more, serious injury is likely and there is a high risk of death.
