April 21, 2019

COLUMBUS, GA. – According to a news story posted online at wtvm.com, a motorcyclist was hit by a vehicle in Columbus, Georgia. It is unclear whether or how seriously the motorcyclist was injured, and reports are conflicting about what kind of vehicle struck him or her. No one involved has been identified at this time.*

The accident happened on the evening of April 17, though the WTVM report does not say what time it occurred. The Columbus Police Department and WTVM report that a motorcycle was traveling in the area of 2nd Avenue and 4th Street in Columbus, when a vehicle hit the motorcycle. It is not clear how the collision took place. 

The report from WTVM says that conflicting information has been provided about the type of vehicle that struck the motorcycle. Some reported information suggests that it might have been a Water Works vehicle. 

However, a witness who works at a nearby gas station, Circle K, said the Water Works vehicle driver was not involved in the crash but stopped to help when a different vehicle hit the motorcycle and fled from the scene. Police have not yet determined which version of events is accurate, and officers have not released information about potential causes of the accident. 

It is unclear at this time if the motorcyclist was injured or required medical transport to a hospital. The motorcyclist was not identified, nor was the driver of the Water Works vehicle. The Columbus Police Department is still investigating and has not yet provided further information about the collision.
