The 25-year-old man who was struck and killed on Gray Highway early Tuesday is being remembered as a talented performer.
Daniel Muhammad, an employee of the Lake Bridge Behavioral Center on Riverside Drive in Macon, was hit by a 2006 Dodge Stratus at around 1:30 a.m., Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones said.
"He was kind of the prototypical spoken word and hip-hop personality," said Jeff Bruce, director of exhibits and collections at the Tubman African American Museum.
"He had a lot of personality," Bruce added. "He was really talented."
Muhammad recently self-published a book on Amazon, Bruce said.
"He performed for us at the Tubman and at local venues ... he was building a reputation and a following," said Bruce.
A 20-year-old woman from Gray was driving a 2006 Dodge Stratus and hit Muhammad on the south side of Gray Highway, between Walmart's entrance and Woodlawn Drive.
