A 23-year-old female was struck and killed by a vehicle on Johnstonville Road early Friday morning. Marquella Hicks was pronounced dead at 3:03 a.m. Friday at Spalding Regional Hospital, according to coroner Jim Smith. Sheriff Brad White noted the Georgia State Patrol is working the fatality but the initial investigation revealed Hicks was fighting with her boyfriend and sat down in the road in front of a home at 411 Johnstonville Rd. Elizabeth Banks of 185 Lanette Circle came over a hill in the vicinity, did not see Hicks and hit her. Smith said no autopsy will be conducted and no charges are expected against Banks.
