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.
Never miss a local story.
Sjoquist is the third pedestrian killed in Bibb County in 2015, Jones said.
