— Authorities in Cary have identified the victim in Tuesday's fatal pedestrian accident.

Investigators said Andrew Frank Mulebya Kussga, 17, of Ribbon Lane, was killed when he stepped in front of a car. Kussga was a student at Cary High School.

According to witnesses at the scene, a 29-year-old woman from Raleigh was driving a 1998 Plymouth Neon west on Tryon Road and moving through the intersection at Piney Plains Road on a green light when the vehicle hit Kussga.

Kussga was transported to WakeMed Raleigh where he was pronounced dead just before 8 a.m. Authorities said he was not carrying any identification.

Kussga’s mother called police Wednesday morning to report that her son was missing, and officers were able to determine that he was the deceased pedestrian.

No charges have been filed in the case.
