Truck driver killed crossing street

LAWRENCEVILLE - A truck driver was struck and killed Monday morning while attempting to cross a street in Lawrenceville.

Authorities said Larry Gunner, 49, of Kannapolis, N.C., was making a scheduled stop on Industrial Park Drive at Industrial Park Circle at 6 a.m. when the accident occurred. As Gunner got out of his truck and began walking across the street, a 1990 Acura Integra slammed into him, said Officer C. Ralston of the Lawrenceville Police Department.

Gunner was thrown clear of the car and died at the scene.

Police believe the area was poorly lit before sunrise. Gunner was also reportedly wearing dark clothing.

The driver of the Acura, 35-year-old Alfredo Gonzalez of Norcross, was cited for not having a license. He was not found to be at fault in the accident and will not face charges, Ralston said.
