A 59-year-old bicyclist was riding with three other bicyclists when he was struck from behind by a vehicle and killed Wednesday evening in Henry County. Now investigators are trying to determine what charges, if any, the driver who struck him should face.
The victim has been identified as John A. Harsch, of Hampton, according to Henry County police. The crash happened around 6:40 p.m. on Lower Woolsey Road near Highway 19/41 in Hampton, police spokesman Capt. Joey Smith said.
Investigators said a 2002 Infinity was negotiating a curve when he came upon a group of bicyclist and struck the victim from behind. Harsch was reportedly a doctor at Southeastern Primary Care Specialists, according to a media report.
The three other bicyclists were not injured during the incident, Smith said. The wreck is still under investigation and the findings will be presented to an upcoming Grand Jury to determine if driver of the Infinity should be charged.
