Police believe a man was killed in Clayton County as he was trying to get to work.

Investigators said the 24-year-old victim was trying to cross Forest Parkway at the Bouldercrest Road intersection late Tuesday night when he was struck by a vehicle. The driver remained on the scene and is cooperating with the investigation.

According to police, the victim was close to the crosswalk when he was hit, but they think he might have been crossing the road against a red light.
