ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A TyTy teenager was killed after he was struck by multiple vehicles on Interstate-75.

Just after 9:30 PM Friday night, 18-year-old Kalum Fender was heading South on I-75 when he lost control of his Chevrolet Cavalier. And hit the center median at Exit 61.

Fender then got out of his vehicle. That's when a woman in a Suburban tried to avoid hitting his car, drove into the emergency lane and hit him.

Fender flew over the median into the Northbound lanes and was struck by oncoming traffic. Troopers say the driver of that Suburban will not face charges because the impact was unavoidable.

They also say this is a reminder to stay in your vehicle after a wreck until traffic is clear.
