The incident happened around 11 p.m.

At least two vehicles were involved.

A couple told 19 News they heard the crash from their home and pulled the man out of the vehicle.

“We were just at home, we heard a crash. My girlfriend looked outside and saw a car, so we put on our shoes, ran down here,” one of the witnesses, Ervin Gulley Jr., said.

“It was heartbreaking, to see somebody... just a lifeless soul, laying there. We pulled him out, we got him in the grass, elevated his head, we tried to see if he was breathing. We felt him breathing, but I guess it didn’t work out,” another witness, Angel Southern, said. “I don’t know... we just tried.”
