HIAWASSEE, Ga – A pedestrian was killed in front of the Sand Bar and Grille on US Hwy 76 overnight on Saturday, June 12.

Georgia State Patrol and Towns County Sheriff’s Office are in the midst of an active investigation. FYN has put a request into the GSP for more information about the tragic incident. Towns County Sheriff Office referred FYN to GSP for case details.

US Hwy 76 is a four-lane road and expands into five with a middle turn lane in front of the dining establishment. The Sand Bar faces out to Lake Chatuge, and the Marina Station Restaurant located diagonally across the road from the Sand Bar. The restaurant and bar is a popular location for a weekend night out, staying out until 1 a.m. in an area with few late-night social options.
