Authorities said the car's 56-year-old driver stopped to investigate, discovered the body of Gutierrez-Gomez in the roadway and called 911, said sheriff's department spokeswoman Sophia Ansari. The sheriff's department and Bartlett Fire Department responded.

Ansari said Gutierrez-Gomez was wearing dark clothing, making it difficult for the driver to see him. That portion of Golf Road also would have been dark at that time of day, she said.

As of Tuesday morning, the crash remains under investigation and authorities were still working to determine why Gutierrez-Gomez was walking along the roadway at that time. Charges are unlikely.
