SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — A bicyclist was hit by a vehicle that failed to stay in its lane on Highway 80 late Tuesday morning, according to the Georgia State Patrol (GSP).
Officials said it appears the vehicle was attempting to pass the bicyclist — who was to the right of the fog line — when the collision happened.
The Chatham County Police Department closed down 80 to one lane in both directions between Thunderbolt and Whitemarsh Island as emergency crews responded.
GSP said the 41-year-old bicyclist Mary Evans was taken to Memorial Hospital with life-threatening injuries. Her condition has not changed.
Charges are pending in the investigation, GSP added.
