A Morehouse College student who was set to graduate in May was killed Sunday after a hit-and-run driver triggered a chain-reaction crash on I-20 West in DeKalb, police said.
Kavi Pudu, 21, of Dallas, Texas, was checking the lights on a rental vehicle when a car hit him about 8 p.m., DeKalb police Lt. Lonzy Robertson said.
At the time, he was in the median on I-20 at the Evans Mill Road exit ramp. According to a crash report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Pudu was dragged down the interstate and pronounced dead on the scene.
“I keep thinking someone will say that Kavi is not dead but at the hospital waiting on us,” his mother, Keisha Ragoobir, said Monday in a Facebook post. “I am so thankful that my son was a strong believer. He loves the Lord with all his might. To the point he told me that he would risk living homeless if that meant he could reach more people with the Gospel!”
Less than an hour before the crash, she said Pudu wrote these words on his Facebook wall: “God has blessed me with this wonderful life.”
