Two pedestrians hit; one killed

ALBANY, Ga. -- While several vehicle wreck investigations are ongoing, the Albany Police Department Investigations Division is soliciting the public's assistance with locating an individual believed to be connected to a forgery incident from earlier this month.

Brian White, 21, is described as a black male with multiple tattoos in his neck area. His last known address is 2406 W. Alberson Drive, and he has been known to be in the company of a woman by the name of Allison Hicks, police say.

Police say White is wanted for forgery in the 1st degree and probation violation. The forgery warrant stems from a June 14 incident at 1002 W. Oakridge Drive and the probation warrant dates from March 26.

Anyone who has information regarding this individual should call Crime Stoppers at (229) 436-TIPS (8477), or they can contact investigators at (229) 431-3288. For immediate officer assistance, individuals can also call (229) 431-2132.

In other reports, a 6-year-old pedestrian was hit by a vehicle Sunday, the day after another pedestrian was killed when she was hit by a car.

Police officials say the child, who was not identified, was transported to the hospital after being struck by a vehicle on the 900 block of South Harding Street around 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Initial reports on the incident show that the child was playing outside and darted into the roadway, with police saying the driver of the Dodge Durango not having enough time to stop.

The driver is not expected to face any charges. The status of the victim was not known Monday afternoon.

On Saturday, Natosha Charmane McCray, 31, was fatally injured when she was struck by a 2000 Chevrolet Impala near the intersection of South Harding Street and West Oglethorpe Boulevard at 5:35 a.m. Charges were pending against the driver, Demetria Harris, 26, on Monday.
