A Georgia State Patrol officer said the accident Wednesday that killed an Auburn bicyclist does not appear to be the result of a hit-and-run.
William C. Hubbard, 52, died at Grady Memorial Hospital around 2:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 28, said Ted Bailey, chief investigator for the Gwinnett County Medical Examiner.
Hubbard was airlifted to the Atlanta hospital around 9 a.m. on July 25 after witnesses found him lying unresponsive in the middle of Boss Hardy Road, according to Barrow County Sheriff’s Office report on the incident.
Trooper Gordy Wright, spokesman for the GSP, referenced the investigator’s initial report, which said the cyclist apparently lost control of his 2006 Trek 5,000 bicycle as he negotiated a turn in the northbound lane of Boss Hardy Road near Easy Street.
Deputies were called to assist on the accident scene, described in the officer's report as a possible hit-and-run. Paramedics told deputies he was unresponsive and suffering from a serious head wound when they arrived to the scene. Witnesses present did not see what happened, officers said.
Hubbard was wearing a helmet and eye protection, Wright said, referencing the GSP report.
