ROSWELL, Ga. – Street racing may be the cause of a crash that killed an innocent 87-year-old Alpharetta man Sunday afternoon. Authorities in Roswell are searching for the driver of one of two cars witnesses said was involved in the racing. That car left the scene of the accident.
According to the Roswell Police Department, the accident took place Sunday afternoon on Highway 9 in front of North Fulton Hospital. Richard Rosen, 87, of Alpharetta, was killed while he was trying to make a left hand turn into the hospital, according to police.
