Pedestrian hit by truck on I-85 identified

LAWRENCEVILLE -- The man who died early on Friday morning after being hit by a tractor-trailer has been identified as 26-year-old Calvin Wilson Jr. of Charlotte, N.C.

Gwinnett County Police responded to the scene on Interstate 85 south near Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road about 3:30 a.m.

Investigators said they did not believe that alcohol or speeding was a factor for the tractor-trailer driver, but were not yet sure regarding Wilson, who died at the scene.

There was nothing in the deceased's pockets to identify him, officials said. Wilson had two visible tattoos: a Grateful Dead-style tattoo on the inside of his left ankle and an all-black design on his left forearm, but there is no comfirmation that the tattoos helped identify the man.

No word on the condition of the driver. The accident is under investigation at this time.
