A young Georgia man was killed after he was hit by four cars and dragged down the street while walking home from the store.
Joshua Love, 20, was walking on the inside of the median lane after picking up snacks for his younger siblings on Sunday night when he was hit by the first vehicle that didn’t stop, WAGA reported.
Love’s family believes he was hit by a street racer because they use that particular median lane to get around slower cars.
“The second, third and fourth car stopped, and they did call the police,” his father, Fidel Love, told the outlet.
Love’s mother, Quandolyn McFarland, said her son ended up stuck underneath the fourth car.
“My baby could probably have had a chance, but they left him, just left him out there, you know,” she said. “It’s painful and, at times, I get angry.”
Fidel was on his way home from work when he saw the incident but was unaware the victim was his son.
“Something came over me and told me ‘don’t get out of the car’ and I truly believe it was God telling me ‘don’t get out,’” he said. “He didn’t want me to see my son like that.”
The driver who allegedly hit Love first has yet to come forward.
The family has started a GoFundMe page to raise money for his funeral. He leaves behind a seven-month-old daughter.
