A 73-year-old Macon man died early Friday, 40 days after he was hit by a pickup in the Kroger parking lot on Tom Hill Sr. Blvd.
Wayne Sjoquist was pronounced dead of a closed head injury at 5:30 a.m. Friday at Pine Pointe Hospice, said Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones.
Sjoquist was entering the crosswalk in front of the supermarket at about 4 p.m. Jan. 18 when he was struck by a Ford F-150 driven by a 41-year-old Lizella man.
No charges were initially filed in the accident, which is under investigation by the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.
Sjoquist is the third pedestrian killed in Bibb County in 2015, Jones said.
