A pedestrian was struck twice on I-75 in Perry. Fort Valley woman died on scene.

A Fort Valley woman in the roadway of Interstate 75 south was struck twice and killed late Friday, authorities said.

Natalie Green, 34, was pronounced dead on the scene, said Houston County Coroner Danny Galpin.

Green was in the right lane of the roadway near mile marker 135 when she was initially struck by the right side mirror of a white Ford F-150 pickup, according to the Georgia State Patrol. Then multiple vehicles crashed and Green was struck by a car the second time.

The multiple-vehicle crash happened while the Ford pickup driver, who’d parked on the left shoulder and called 911, was waiting for first responders to arrive. A white box truck struck a Pontiac Grand Am, which caused the Pontiac to hit the Ford. Then, a black Chrysler 300 struck Green in the roadway, troopers said. The box truck left the scene.

Green had been an occupant of another vehicle which was stopped on the right side of the southbound roadway. It’s unknown why Green was in the roadway, troopers said.

Southbound lanes were shut down for a few hours until the wreckage was cleared.

The incident, which happened shortly before 11 p.m., remains under investigation.
