Sharpsburg, GA – Michael Byrom Injured in Motorcycle Crash on Ragsdale Rd 

Sharpsburg, GA (October 4, 2022) – A man was seriously injured in a Shaprsburg motorcycle accident that took place on Sunday, October 2. 

Georgia State Patrol officials confirmed that the accident happened on Sunday at an unknown time at 154 Ragsdale Road. Police stated that a motorcyclist was traveling east behind a utility truck. The motorcyclist started to pass but the utility truck made a left turn, causing the two vehicles to collide with one another. The motorcycle was badly damaged as a result of the collision. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other Sharpsburg responders were called to the scene to help those in need. The motorcyclist, who has since been identified as 45-year-old Michael Byrom, was severely injured in the accident and airlifted to Grady Hospital. It is believed that nobody else was hurt in the collision. 

Due to the severity of the accident, a portion of the road was blocked for some time following the collision. This led to delays until police were able to fully clear the scene. 

No further details have been released but the investigation continues. Police will update with more information as it is available. 

We offer our warmest thoughts and prayers to the motorcyclist injured in this accident with hopes of a full recovery.
