Cobb County man hit, killed by SUV in driveway

Posted: Updated:

ACWORTH, Ga. (AP) - Authorities have identified a man who was fatally struck by an SUV as it plowed into a house in suburban Atlanta.

Cobb County police spokesman Mike Bowman says 52-year-old Javier Morales of Kennesaw was standing in front of the vehicle outside a house in Acworth when it accelerated through the garage and into the house.

Investigators say Morales and a 46-year-old Woodstock man may have performed maintenance on the car before the crash, and authorities are unsure of why the vehicle accelerated.

Charges haven't been filed in the crash and police say the incident is under investigation.
