October 19, 2006

This morning's heavy fog may have been a factor in an early morning wreck that killed a man.

Deputy Coroner Mark Bowen tells News 12 57-year-old Richard Powers of Old Savannah Road was hit by two vehicles while walking on Mike Padgett Highway.

It happened after 3 a.m. near Hephzibah-McBean Road in south Augusta.

Bowen says powers had been drinking before the accident.
