Authorities probing pair of pedestrians hit in Greensboro

Jan. 25—GREENSBORO, Ga. — A Greene County man and woman are recovering from injuries they sustained Jan. 15 after they were hit by a vehicle on Cunningham Road in Greene County.

Troopers with the Georgia State Patrol post in Madison are investigating, along with deputies and investigators with the Greene County Sheriff's Office.

The victims were identified as Tylisha Charmaine Jackson, 31, of the 1000 block of Adrian Drive, Greensboro; and Tarrance Travon Williams, 24, of the 100 block of Brighton Road, Greensboro, according to an incident report filed by Greene County Sheriff's Office Deputy R. Hall.

The injured victims were treated at the scene by firefighters/first responders with Greene County Fire Rescue and personnel with Greene County Emergency Medical Services.

Hall said he questioned several people at the scene to see whether they saw or heard anything involving the couple being hit by a vehicle but received no information.

The deputy noted in his report that as he drove up to the scene he saw several vehicles leaving the area, including some race cars on trailers.

Hall said he and a state trooper began looking for evidence that might lead them to what happened.

They spotted some blue paint from a vehicle near where the victims were found laying on the ground when authorities arrived on the scene.

"We began trying to locate the vehicle, so the GSP trooper and I began canvassing the area in an attempt to locate the vehicle," Deputy Hall said. "Within a mile up the road from the accident scene, the trooper spotted a blue vehicle in a yard, partially covered by a tarp."

It was later determined that the car found was the one that was involved in hitting the pedestrians.

The car was towed by a wrecker as evidence in the case.

There had been no report of anyone arrested as of Tuesday.
