Unidentified cyclist seriously injured in Gillsville

By B.J. Williams News Director
GILLSVILLE - The Georgia State Patrol is trying to determine the identity of a bicyclist who collided with a car and was seriously injured Sunday morning on Bryant Quarter Road.

Investigating troopers said the crash happened around 10:30 a.m. near Cobb Griffin Road as the unidentified cyclist was traveling northbound on Bryant Quarter. A 1994 Ford Escort approached the bicycle from behind, according to the GSP report. The driver of the vehicle moved completely into the southbound lane to avoid the cyclist, but the cyclist traveled into the southbound lane and hit the vehicle in the right passenger side door.
