Peachtree City police are offering a $1,000 reward in a July 31 case where a bicyclist was found in the roadway after a collision with a motor vehicle on South Peachtree Parkway at Fisher’s Luck.

Peachtree City Police Department spokesman Donte Phillips said officers at 6:36 a.m. on July 31 received information through the Fayette County Communications Center of a possible collision involving a cyclist on Peachtree Parkway, in the southbound lanes, north of Fisher’s Luck.

“Upon arrival, officers observed that a male bicyclist had injuries to the face and head area,” Phillips said. “It was quickly apparent that he was a victim of a motor vehicle collision.” The victim is a 35-year-old resident of Peachtree City.

After preliminary investigations the Community Response Team (C.R.T.) discovered the following:

The bicyclist was traveling southbound on Peachtree Parkway just north of Fisher’s Luck. The original witness located the male laying in the southbound lanes of Peachtree Parkway just north of Fisher’s Luck, thinking that he was debris in the roadway.

She discovered that he was severely injured and she did not see another motor vehicle in the area. She and other motorists confirmed that he was conscious and called 911.

The victim was identified, his family was notified and he was transported via life flight to an Atlanta trauma center with severe head injuries.

The Peachtree City Police Department is offering a $1,000 reward for information regarding this case that leads to an arrest and conviction.
