A Norcross man was charged with the felony of failure to stop at an accident after turning himself in April 22 in connection with a hit-and-run accident April 15 on Dunwoody Place Drive in northern Sandy Springs.
Nestor Tirado-Villar, 45, is accused of striking Tyler Toscendo Lusk, 18, of Sandy Springs in a Mercedes-Benz shortly after 9 p.m. April 15 as Lusk crossed Dunwoody Place Drive near Hope Road. Lusk was critically injured and taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.
Tirado-Villar surrendered to police after seeing media coverage of the hit-and-run.
The incident came a week after another pedestrian crossing a road, Irma Morales-Perez, 39, of Sandy Springs, suffered fatal injuries in a hit-and-run in the 4900 block of Roswell Road. In that case, Jose Luis Rivera-Cortina, 21, of Sandy Springs faces charges of second-degree homicide by vehicle, failure to exercise due care and operating a vehicle without a license.
