Cyclist seriously hurt at Eisenhower and Pio Nono

Telegraph staffOctober 18, 2013 

A person on a bicycle was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries after being hit by a vehicle shortly before 8:30 p.m. Thursday.

Macon police traffic fatality investigators closed off the intersection of Eisenhower Parkway and Pio Nono Avenue for two and a half hours as they investigated the accident and took multiple photographs of the bike and the scene.

Macon police dispatchers did not learn the age of the cyclist, who apparently lost consciousness.

Investigators appeared to be detaining the driver of a black Ford 350 pickup, but referred all questions to public information officer Jami Gaudet.

A witness told The Telegraph the pickup was headed east on Eisenhower and had a green light when a young man on a bike darted across the road into the truck’s path.

The victim appeared to have suffered extensive injuries to his hip, the witness said.

No further information was immediately available Friday morning.
