Rome, GA – Fatal Hit-and-Run Bicycle Crash on Redmond Circle

Rome, GA (March 10, 2022) – Around 7:49 p.m. on Wednesday evening, March 9, one person was killed in a Rome bicycle crash. 

The Rome Police Department confirmed that the accident happened on Redmond Circle around the area of Westside Industrial Boulevard. A cyclist was traveling south in the area when a white pickup truck approached them from behind. The driver of the pickup truck struck the cyclist and then quickly fled the scene without checking on the victim. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other local responders were called to the scene to help those in need. The bicyclist, who has not yet been formally identified, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene due to traumatic injuries. 

Due to the severity of the collision, the roadway was blocked in the area of the accident for a period of time. It is believed that the pickup truck has extensive damage to its front end and undercarriage. 

Rome Police continue their investigation into the circumstances of the collision. 

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
