University student Jason Zhengxin Hao was killed Friday night after running into the path of an oncoming trucck on the Athens Perimeter, according to police.
According to a report in the Athens Banner-Herald, a tow-truck driver pulling a tractor trailer saw Hao crouched on the side of the road as he approached South Milledge Avenue coming from Oconee County, said Athens-Clarke police Lt. Keith Morris.
Hao darted into the road. The driver of the tow truck and his passenger "had absolutely no time to react," Morris said.
The accident is being ruled as a possible suicide, Morris told the Banner-Herald, and no charges are planned against the truck driver.
