Februry 21--  The Toombs County Sheriff's Office is investigating a fatal hit-and-run accident.

Toombs County Sheriff Junior Kight reports 32-year-old Ramon Alvarado of 210 Apache Lane in Lyons was killed Sunday night shortly after nine o'clock as he was walking north on Highway 152, the Cobbtown Road, about two miles north of the Lyons city limits.

"We received a call from a truck driver who found the body laying in the roadway.  It appears he was hit from behind and carried the body about fifty yards down the road.  Whoever hit the subject fled the scene," the Sheriff reports.

If you have information about the accident, Sheriff Kight asks that you call his office at 526-6778.  His deputies and the Georgia State Patrol are investigating the accident.

"Right now we are looking for the person who hit him. We're checking with body shops and we've put a lookout with other counties trying to come up with something on it," he said.
