A Georgia State trooper died in the line of duty on Tuesday after a vehicle struck him as he investigated a crash on Interstate 75, authorities said.

Trooper First Class Chase Redner was struck on I-75 North in Clayton County, the Georgia Department of Public Safety said. He was rushed to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he died.

Redner was investigating a similar fatal accident involving a construction worker that had occurred in the area just hours earlier, FOX5 Atlanta reported.

He was struck while outside of his patrol vehicle.

It was unclear whether the driver of the vehicle that struck Redner would be charged. The Troop C Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team is investigating the crash.

Trooper Redner had served with the Georgia State Patrol for over six years. He is survived by his mother and fiancée, ODMP reports.
