BREMEN, Ga. (CBS46) - The Haralson County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after they say a pedestrian was struck and killed near U.S. Highway 78 in Bremen early Saturday morning.

Officials say troopers from Post 29 responded to a two-vehicle crash around 5:30 a.m. near U.S. Highway 78 in the area of Arise Church. When officers arrived on the scene, they were told a vehicle struck a pedestrian near Route 8 in the area of Landfill Road.

Officials confirm a Honda CRV traveling east on Georgia Rt. 8 struck the pedestrian who was walking towards it. The impact caused the pedestrian to be struck by a Lexus LS400 traveling west.

Officials say the Haralson County Coroner’s office worked to identify the pedestrian, who was pronounced dead at the scene. Due to ongoing notification of family, the victim’s name will not be released at this time, according to officials.

Officials say Paulding County Sheriff’s Office assisted with the investigation.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
