A part-time Uber driver was struck and killed when he stepped out in front of a southbound vehicle on Dunbar Road early Saturday, Peach County Coroner Kerry Rooks said.
Paul Russell Bonney, 39, of Kathleen, was pronounced dead at the scene at 12:55 a.m., the coroner said.
"He died instantly," Rooks said.
Bonney and another Uber driver had parked in the northbound lane of a narrow section of Dunbar Road within the city limits of Bryon in Peach County that runs parallel with Interstate 75, Rooks said.

Bonney was parked behind the other driver.
Bonney had gotten out of his vehicle, stepped over the fence that separates Dunbar Road and I-75 to talk to passengers of a northbound Greyhound bus that had broken down and was pulled over on the shoulder of the far right lane of the interstate, Rooks said.
Bonney had come back across the fence and then stepped into the southbound roadway of Dunbar when he was struck about 12:20 a.m., Rooks said.
The Georgia State Patrol's Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team is investigating the pedestrian fatality.
