A Macon resident identified as Lawrence James Bradley faces a Vehicle Homicide 1st Degree charge following a fatal accident in Bibb County. The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office placed the time of the accident at about 12:29 a.m. on Sunday, March 21st.
In a press release, the sheriff’s office said the 48-year-old suspect was heading south on Broadway near Greter Street. Simultaneously, a group of motorcycle riders traveled on the same roadway. The police said Bradley’s Ford expedition then struck the three people from the group.
The impact severely injured a 45-year-old man riding a Harley Davidson motorcycle. The Macon resident succumbed to his wounds while undergoing treatment at Atrium Navicent Health. The police have informed his next-of-kin but haven’t released his name.
The sheriff’s office said two other Harley Davison riders sustained injuries. The investigators identified them as Theodore Newton, 60, and Manuel Newton, 34. Medics conveyed the two to Atrium Navicent Health, and they were in stable condition at the time of the press release.
Paramedics treated Bradley at the crash scene and then released him. The BCSO collision investigators interviewed the suspect before placing him in Bibb County Jail without bond. No one else sustained injuries in the collision.
The sheriff’s office is still investigating the fatal accident in Bibb County, and there’s no update at this time. Anyone with relevant information about the incident should contact the BCSO on the listed line.
When an auto-motorcycle collision happens, the motorcyclist is often the victim as the bike offers them no protection. The police would have to investigate to see between the motorcyclist and the driver who was at fault. The at-fault party would have to pay compensation to the victim.
