A Hall County teenager was killed Friday night after being struck by two cars along an Atlanta highway.

Gwinnett County police say 18-year-old Hunter Collins was killed in the incident after getting involved in a fight.

Gwinnett Police Detective J. Smith said Saturday that Collins was hit by a car and then run over by a second one on the northbound side of Peachtree Industrial Boulevard.

Police said Collins and three others were fighting on the side of the road Friday night. Another person stopped and broke up the fight, then told the group to lie on the ground while he called the police.

Collins decided to run across Peachtree Industrial instead. Police say he climbed a barrier and ran into the first car before being struck and killed.

Police said the group had been drinking before they got into a fight.

Funeral arrangements are incomplete, according to Memorial Park North Riverside Chapel.
