Macon, GA (February 6, 2023) – Around 7:30 p.m. on Sunday evening, February 5, a man was killed in a fatal bicycle accident on a major road in Macon.
According to Bibb County officials, the accident happened in the eastbound lanes of Eisenhower Parkway around the area of Log Cabin Drive. Police confirmed that a bicyclist was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes when they were suddenly struck by a passenger vehicle due to reasons that are not fully known. The driver of the vehicle stopped and remained on the scene.
Macon responders, including paramedics and fire crews, were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. The bicyclist, who has since been identified as 49-year-old Alexis Davison, was rushed to Atrium Health Navicent with blunt force trauma injuries. He was tragically pronounced dead while there. The driver of the vehicle sustained minor injuries and was treated on scene but is expected to be okay.
Due to the severity of the accident, a large portion of the road was blocked in the area for some time. This led to extensive delays until the scene was cleared.
No further details have been released. Police continue their investigation into the circumstances of the accident at this time.
We offer our warmest condolences to the family and friends of the victim who lost his life as a result of this accident.
