Emily Bowman of Woodstock was walking in the grass alongside Oak Street, between Carr and Oconee streets about 3:05am. A 1997 red Mazda pick up truck traveling eastbound on Oak Street left the roadway, hit her, then fled the scene, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Police located the vehicle a little later, but not the driver, according to a ACC Police report.
The young woman was taken to Athens Regional Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. Her father told the AJC that she was in Athens for a friend's birthday.
On Kennesaw State's Facebook page, school officials wrote that their "thoughts are with Emily & her family at this time."
