PERRY -- A 34-year-old man who was riding his bicycle when he was struck by a car Monday sustained minor injuries, a Georgia State Patrol trooper said.
Jeremy Lawayne Sowell, of Perry, was traveling north on General Courtney Hodges Boulevard when he was struck by a gray Chevrolet Impala, Trooper Michael Strickland said in an email. The car was turning south from Bonner Driver onto General Courtney Hodges Boulevard.
Sowell said he initially stopped and waited for the car to turn but then began to continue riding, Strickland said. Sowell said he was not sure if the car’s driver saw him, Strickland said.
The car’s driver said that as she began to turn right, Sowell hit the front of her car, Strickland said.
A witness to the accident said Sowell never stopped and traveled into the path of the car, Strickland said.
Sowell was treated and released from Perry Hospital where he was taken by ambulance after the accident, Strickland said.
No charges are pending in the 5:40 p.m. crash, Strickland said.
