Cyclist injured in bike vs. car accident | News
A Macon man was hurt Thursday after he crashed his bicycle into a car on Eisenhower Parkway.
According to the Macon-Bibb Sheriff's Department, it happened Thursday near the intersection of Eisenhower Parkway and Macon Tech Drive.
Shirley Jacobs of Macon got the green light to make a left turn from Eisenhower Parkway westbound onto Macon Tech Drive.
As she turned, 63-year-old Billy Stafford of Macon struck the passenger side fender of her Buick Century and flew off his bike.
Stafford was taken to the Medical Center of Central Georgia for his injuries, which were not believed to be life-threatening.
Lt. Sean DeFoe with the sheriff's office says Mrs. Jacobs had the right of way and cyclists are required to follow traffic signals the same way vehicles do.
