Man killed in Bibb County hit-and-run accident

A west Bibb County man died Wednesday night in a fatal hit-and-run accident.

Andres Raymundo Matom, 26, was hit by a vehicle near his home in the Hawaiian Village Trailer Park west of Interstate 475 at about 10:50 p.m., said Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones.

Matom died less than an hour later.

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office investigators say Matom was in the middle of Hawaiian Village Drive when he was hit by a 2003 Ford Econoline van driven by Wen Xiong Yang, who is charged with leaving the scene.

Investigators do not yet know why Matom was in the street.
