• Pedestrian Hit, Killed Near Bowling Alley

    CHAMBLEE, Ga. - Chamblee police officials said officers are investigating a fatal pedestrian accident near a bowling alley.

    Officers were called to Savoy Drive at about 10:30 p.m. Saturday by the driver, police said.

    Chamblee police said the pedestrian was identified as 50-year-old Kenneth Del Dillard. Police said Dillard lived in an apartment complex on North Peachtree Road in Chamblee, a few blocks from the accident location.

    According to investigators, Dillard was walking westbound on the grass shoulder of Savoy Drive and stepped into the road in front of a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder. The driver of the Pathfinder struck Dillard, who landed on the right shoulder.

    Police said Dillard was wearing all black clothing and was in an area that was not well-lit. A friend of Dillard told police that he had been drinking and decided to walk to visit someone in a nearby apartment complex rather than drive.

    The driver was released without being charged.

    The investigation continues.
