Our deepest condolences to this young man's family.
A 25-year-old Athens man died Thursday from injuries he suffered last week when a sport utility vehicle hit his bicycle in southern Clarke County.
Brandon D. Miller was biking on Macon Highway at about 11:30 p.m. Sept. 11 when a man driving a Chevrolet Tahoe turned from Macon Highway onto South Lumpkin Street and collided with Miller’s bike, Athens-Clarke police said.
The impact threw the cyclist onto the SUV’s hood and then onto the ground, police said.
Miller was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital, police said, and he died on Thursday.
Police noted that Miller’s bicycle wasn’t equipped with lights, but said an investigation was continuing.
It could not be immediately learned this morning if the investigation had been completed.
Pay attention, be visible, be aware, and be safe out there.
