Authorities with the Georgia State Patrol are asking for assistance in identifying the suspect of a hit-and- run incident in Newnan this weekend.

According to Georgia State Patrol Trooper Randolph Collins, the hit-and-run occurred Saturday around 8:40 p.m. on Jackson Street. A man riding a bicycle near Phillips Street was struck from behind by a vehicle while heading into Newnan, Collins said. 

The suspect in the vehicle never stopped or provided assistance to the man, but fortunately other motorists later found the victim and called police, Collins said.

The victim has been in the hospital since the accident and suffered from a broken pelvis, Collins said.

Collins has asked for anyone with information about this accident to contact him at the Newnan Georgia State Patrol post by calling 770-254-7201.
