College student killed in bicycle crash near Macon

Driving in Georgia comes with its share of risks, but bicycles and motorcycles leave their riders far more exposed to dangers. Even the slightest and slowest collision can be seriously injurious or fatal to cyclists.

A 21-year-old college student was run over by a bus in Milledgeville when he was riding his bike near the vehicle. The incident occurred mid-morning when the cyclist attempted to cross the street while the bus driver was turning right.

The biker was traveling in the same direction as the bus and hit the bus as it suddenly appeared in front of him. The collision threw him off the bicycle into the path of the bus, and he received fatal injuries from the trauma.

The Georgia State Patrol is investigating the crash as the community mourns the loss of the student. The man was described as "a bright light on our campus and will truly be missed," according to the college where he attended.

Cyclists' collisions with any large vehicles often prove fatal, and they are often more difficult to see for drivers of trucks and buses. Riders must take the initiative to protect themselves through defensive practices, leaving plenty of room between them and vehicles most likely to pose dangers to them.

Victims of bicycle crashes and the survivors of bicycle fatalities have the right to seek financial damages from drivers who may have been at fault in the collision. An attorney can assist victims and their families with the difficult process of naming all possible defendants of filing a lawsuit in civil court.
