Our thoughts and prayers go out to this young man's family.
A Winterville man was killed trying to cross Lexington Road between Winterville Road and Barnett Shoals Road on Saturday night, according to Athens-Clarke police.
Kyle Haynes, 23, was crossing the highway when he apparently stumbled and was struck by an east-bound Ford F-150 around 9:30.
Folks, always be careful out there, but especially this next few weeks. Thousands of 18-year old new arrivals are driving Athens' streets, and they may not be used to sharing the road with buses, cyclists, or pedestrians. Be extra watchful out there, and drivers: keep it slow, and watch carefully for other users of the road. Share the road. Save a life.
